Lights Out


Energy can’t be destroyed

It can only be contained

Madiba has cast off his earthly remains,

His vision calmed his people’s sorrow 

He fought the past to save tomorrow

We cry not for him but what we’ve lost

For others hate he paid the cost

The world sings for him sweet songs of joy

For his legacy gifts every girl and boy

With a steady hand he wrote on history’s pages

A life we won’t forget throughout the ages

A warm smile and a serene look

He gave to us more than he took

Beneath the media hyperbole

There was a man of profound soul

He gave it all and now must sleep

To honor him we should not weep

A hero’s spirit has no end

Like a phoenix Madiba’s ghost ascends

Energy can’t be destroyed
