The mother of nation…!

The mother of nation…!

skynews-winnie-madikizela-mandela_4271542A heart to Give

A soul to Nurture

She had this in her

As a young woman

She fought for others

Who needed her shelter

A voice for others and

She found her soulmate

In all these grounds

Who also fought for

Apartheid, married

And lived separated

In Jail, she took his baton

Became the voice of defiance

Those who did nothing

Under apartheid

Never made mistakes

She was loved and called

The mother of nation

Who said goodbye!
