‘A Life to Vote’

Mandela: Whatever It Takes For Freedom!

A sample from Book 2

 A Life to Vote
 
twenty-eight years behind
a prisoned door
political ciaos
left a country sore
 
political service
single man's allure
youth groups for the poor
community organizations‒
his energy did pour
his writings
never a bore
 
released in 1990
a country's heart
he still wore
even with reasons before
 
a south african black
considered the whore
their votes
squashed
on the floor
 
that time lingered
no more
at age 75‒
his first vote
casted in 1994
not a single vote
the country tore
nelson mandela‒
became its commodore
as president
he did soar
 

(December 6, 2013)—In memory of Mr. Mandela (1918-2013). I wrote this in 2009. It’s simple, nothing to brag about.

He’s always been an inspiration to me. This lost should not be mourned but celebrated. He prevailed. Cheers to a meaningful life. They cast him out for a while, too. He was betrayed but he held on. The strong can never be held down for long.

Thank you God for giving us a life such as Nelson Mandela. Love the skin you’re in.
