What will you do?

He was just a man who lived a life
But it’s what he did with that life
That leave him remembered in our thoughts
His father named him “troublemaker”
And to some that is what he might have been
But he lived a life that changed the world
Especially the one in which I live
His fight was for freedom and equality for all
He practiced forgiveness and compassion
And wished for a peaceful life for everyone
Though he made positive steps for our future
He never got to see this in his lifetime
And so it’s up to us to honour his legacy
And who wouldn’t want to live our lives
In the free world that he dreamed?
How will you live your life to help
make Madiba’s world come true?

Happy Mandela Day
