A sample from Book 2
A Life to Vote
twenty-eight years behind
a prisoned door
left a country sore
single man's allure
youth groups for the poor
his energy did pour
never a bore
released in 1990
a country's heart
he still wore
even with reasons before
a south african black
considered the whore
on the floor
that time lingered
at age 75‒
his first vote
casted in 1994
not a single vote
the country tore
became its commodore
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.
