NELSON MANDELA (by Tirupathi Chandrupatla)

Nelson Mandela
You’re the idol
Of freedom and peace
For all humanity.

You fought for freedom
Made many sacrifices
You set your goals
And achieved them all.

Not just Africa
But the world’s proud
For what you gave
In a selfless way.

Twenty seven years
You spent in darkness
To shed rays of hope
For downtrodden masses.

Nobel prize for peace
You received in honor
But no prize’s higher
Than the prize of freedom.

Mandela, Mandela
Beloved Madiba*
You’re forever
Etched in our hearts.
