At the time they laughed he wiped his embattled tears

At the time they smiled he frowned on their iniquities

At the time they taunted he beckoned back with smiles

At the time they planned he waited with valor and faith

They in no way knew the hero he would one day become

At the time they struck him his pains made him stronger

The long time in prison he never let his dream die in there

Out he came and proves that still his dream would emulate today

In his time he made peace when all though he would fight back

In his time he smiled when all thought he would have glared

Retribution he refused but rather reconciliation he embraced

He is gone but his legacy will forever be etched in millions of hearts

Farewell Madiba as you rest in eternal peace with our dear Lord
