Beautiful green land witnessed your birth When your eyes opened light was shed everywhere Strong South African soul! Strong human soul! Greatness was not your goal Justice is all your heart longed A real fighter! A real leader! Education is the core you once said You never gave up! Your body was jailed, but not your soul They tried to extinguish the fire in your heart, but they failed You were stronger than that You were stronger than all the evil Free thinker, free soul! Revenge was not in your dictionary You decided to learn the language of your enemy You decided to pour forgiveness on your oppressors Sacrifice, tears, separation…all you trade for your people Love and forgiveness you taught us You are not longer with us, but your thoughts, your love, your example will forever dwell in our hearts Not only on your beautiful land, but on all corners of our world Magic smile, wise eyes! The world will never forget you, Tata! God is hearing how grateful we are for having sent you to this world The greatest, the humblest, the wisest! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Madiba!

Didn’t guess I will ever find you Didn’t guess this will end up like this Didn’t guess your words, your attitude will hurt me But I did learn! I learned not to expect anything I learned there is a big ocean between you and me I learned that you never cared Wish my thoughts and feelings were clearer The hardest part is to stay still and do nothing The hardest part is to realize the truth Too many expectations perhaps…an “I’m sorry” would’ve done it Wish I could scream… wish I could take this feeling into my hands and tear it off But now I must do what is best for me A whole world awaits and this feeling won't knock me down In the meantime I will do the hardest part: "nothing".

Hours and hours go by Breathing in, breathing out Chaos controls us People coming and going like doomed souls Anyone there? Words are not heard Emotions are not understood You want out, but would that be enough? You want to be left alone, but would that be enough? You decide not to smile You decide not be seen vulnerable, but would that be enough? People and people pass by Anyone there? Heartbeats are misunderstood Fear grabs you and you want out, but would that be enough? Not big enough, not brave enough And you wonder if there is someone out there Someone in this strange land, in this strange world Anyone there? And suddenly you hear someone knocking at the door Are you ready to go for it? Yes, there is someone there for you Decide to love, decide to climb the highest mountain, decide to open your heart Believe there is someone there for you

Back when you were a child Things seemed all possible They were indeed possible when you closed your eyes They both were holding hands and smiling at each other Things were possible, my friend! Hugs and love and someone who could be there for you You just needed that Someone who could understand who you were A solitaire soul A thousand of thoughts An innocent smile Growing up went faster than you expected So many decisions to be made A solitaire soul embracing life You just want to run away and hide in this wonderful world Never coming back home There is no home to go back to Home is just wherever you go Home is within your heart It’s so hard to grow up Teenage jeans don’t fit anymore Shadows of wrinkles invading your face You’re happy, no regrets! But how hard is to grow up and pretend you are an adult An adult who knows exactly how to reach the top mountain Decisions, decisions Forgiveness, forgiveness Hiding in this beautiful world Just a break from this madness And a chai tea will do... No regrets!

Millions of people around A chaotic stream of voices awaiting something to begin Everyday thoughts coming and going like fireworks Nothing to be worried about Youth in my veins, passion awaiting Deep silence reigned Peace took my heart over Right time, right place Who would have thought? I would have run to your arms just there, but got immobilized Feeling something bigger than this world was about to begin You, stepping into the greatest love ever known Me, realizing that I would never forget you The day I met you I understood life didn’t have any sense without you The day I met you I started to breathe The day I met you I smiled again The day I met you love songs were played in my heart Sunshine, sunshine, sunshine reigned From all experiences, I will never forget the day I met you Will you?
