watching over madiba (june. 23, 2013. 6:07 p.m. est, usa), nayyirah waheed (via nayyirahwaheed)
today, dec 5th, 2013 madiba has gone from this world. i thank him for the wideness and largeness of his spirit, the lion of his waters, the strength that fed us all. he taught me the truth about africa, taught me that she can and never will be defeated. i shed tears because i am happy you were here, amongst us, with us, filling us all with your light, love, and quiet honey. you magnificent child of Africa, let us sing and dance you home to the ancestors :)))
Even though I want to rejoice for the life well spent and what Madiba gave to me I can’t help but cry. Quiet tears fall from my eyes. It was one of my dreams to one day meet you and talk with you. Now I’ll have to wait until we meet beyond the sky. Rest well knowing you have fought a good fight. You have won the race.
"I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear." ~ Nelson Mandela. Rest in peace, Madiba. Photo: Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.
Mandela, we will never forget what you endured in order to leave us with a better world.
