Life is tenuous at best, hanging on by a thread
yet sometimes a man comes along with the strength to survive
through the toughest conditions
battered but not broken
through long years of shadows
to come out and shine in the sun and achieve the impossible
and go out as a shining beacon for the rest of the world.
Nelson Mandela has gone to his well deserved rest
and we are all the poorer for the passing of this shining light.
