Thank You Madita!

Freedom something
that should be
for all mankind
freedom now
Mandela gone
is it left
behind
has freedom in this
world increased
or has it declined?

Do we still believe
as he taught
that freedom is
for all
or have we put
his words
away
letting
freedom
stall?

How do we
see our
fellow man
white, yellow, red,
black, or tan
are they
restricted by our
overruling ban or
encouraged as we say
“Yes You Can”?

Let all the work
and dedication he
gave not accompany
Madita
to his grave
so that we may
see others
equally
not as inhuman
not as our slave.

~Miguel

  1. very very beautiful poem Miguel, whether or not his dreams came true, whether or not we follow his ideals he certainly left a golden trail- choose or not is our choice at the end!
