Nelson-Mandela

Madiba, 18 juli 1918 – 5 december 2013

Is it possible to suffer so many years when it was
not any hope at the horizon
To be harassed, discriminated,
tortured and prisoned
And still remained a
good-hearted person?

Is it possible to fight for peace,
freedom and democracy
For a better world so many years,
and losing the best years of his life behind bars

And still think
like a human being?

Is it really possible to be a loving leader
With the ultimate political power
And million of fans behind him
And even though step down and
Give his position to others?

Is it possible that a human being
Can be so good, so good?

The answer is: 46664.
