madiba was born
like any other man,
the path he chose,
to take a stand.
to change what
was wrong
while still believing
that there was good.
even after the tortures
and miseries he withstood.
a man who never lost hope
nor let go of his dreams.
with great courage and
he triumphed over the
worst of man's schemes.
madiba the world has lost
its brightest of lights.
on angels wings you now soar,
and the world bids you
good night.

About Me

My photo
i am older than dirt and proud of it!!!! i have managed to incorporate my eternal 60's nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga, the beach, waking up in the morning. i find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. i have added sketching, watercolor painting, and photography to my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from living with a chronic illness, i have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance. P.S. all painting, poems and photographs are my originals karen Lyons kalmenson
