Nelson

Mandela died today

ou peut-être hier, je ne sais pas

the news of his death was no surprise

to a world already dressed in black

a world already mourning

a man who changed the world

from a world coloured black and white

to a world so colourful

that not a single shade

could ever matter the most.

We lost a piece of history today

ou peut-être hier, je ne sais pas,

Let’s hope we can hold onto the rainbow.
