Thank you Kelly for your comments, much appreciated. Damian
I do not belong to your great land, but this poem is epic, and truly, truly grand. An inspiration.
Mandela was an example to the world of how to act in adversity, how to be Magnanimous in victory and that forgiveness, is a stronger and more satisfying emotion than vengeance. All leaders should learn from him. Your poem is a well crafted tribute.
