“I don't share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently,

I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.”

From the Sarafina soundtrack, Freedo is coming tomorrow

“this prayer.
this prayer.
this prayer.
‘elder mandela.
here is my heart to place under yours.
as
right now
you are slow breaths
and
low eyes.
all that strength you made fom your blood.
a whole nation of black pain.
you carried in your spine.
from
a jail cell. made from your mother’s island.
i return some to you.
here.
are my legs.
my arms.
my voice.
madiba.
ninety four years
is
many lives.
is many bones to go through.
many walks through the sun.
many hearts to shed.
many stars of joy to comb through your hair.
a lot of time
to drink.
let us hold you now.
let us warm the water for your skin.
let our youth be your comfort.
we have seen how your feet danced.
know.
that we have commited
your rhythm.
your song.
you. to memory.
our weeping
is
all hope and fresh mourning.
we know what the ancestors sound like
when they come.
when
they are ready for you.
madiba.
if you have done
what
you came to do.
if
you
are finished transcribing your soul into humanity.
we will
have our cloth ready.
our flowers ready.
our songs in our mouths ready.
our feet and all the drums ready.
our fresh water.
our spirits.
ready.
to
walk
you
home.
ashé.’”

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 :)))

Yem yem, nqolomsila, sopitsho, Madiba…nothing could have ever prepared the world for this day.  We celebrate your phenomenally inspiring life with sadness and joy in our hearts. I feel blessed to have lived in your time. Thank you for everything you did for South Africa and the world. To you, no-limit soldier, this is not goodbye, but rather, until we meet again. Lala ngoxolo Tata.
