Nelson Mandela, Original.
It was a long recovery, getting over all the rage, but he made it to the other side and lived to tell the tale, it began with a feeling that this can’t be good for the soul, the way they treated his brothers and the way they fuelled a hate, relentless in his passion he ventured on and planned the extension, beatings murder terror and fear the weapons they used against him, life eventually catching up on him wasn’t one of his fears, never worried about his personal protection strong beyond all fears, used all the tools at his disposal from across all frontiers of the globe, cried freedom from the top of his voice it could be heard everywhere,
gathering momentum he began to experience the wonderful energy of love, the strength of faith that enlivens can only come from God, he laboured on cutting down the oppression leaving a path others could find, he moved on and pushed faced punishment and personal risk it went on for years, took chances angels would never think of because of their fears, if it’s my fate he said it’s my faith and he decides in the sky, managed to get to the other side waved the flag of freedom sent the world a wonderful sign to see, his name was Nelson Mandela and he was a very special sort of man, found it in his heart to forgive and forget all those brutal scenes, practised the words of God each day and let go of all his fears, he had faith his spirit and love, amen, now he’s up there in Heaven and I hear him ringing those bells, Oh Nelson,
welcome to your new home smiles God then handles him the forgiveness bell, Nelson smiles, can I ring the bell, the way a young child would, always with a smile, ain’t it good to have memories that everyone can share, the original plan of God, amen.
Years later, God is perplexed, Nelson is at his table with a list of matters to be set right, God answers, forgive forgive forgive forgive forgive forgive, forgive, writes God opposite every entry Nelson Made, then smiles, remember what I TOLD YOU IN PRISON, FORGIVE BEGINS AT THE TOP and works it’s way down, it’s the lawyers who set the rules at the bottom hoping that no one makes it up, Elvis is giving guitar lessons in the sun room, why don’t you learn a few Jimmy Hendrix numbers they get me going too, You mean he’s in there too, along with, God pauses, calls saint Peter over, Peter, who do we have playing in the orchestra tonight, Russian symphony, French, German, we have all sorts of musical orchestra’s here, what is nelson interested in, beatle mania I can’t believe it is it really him, he spots George Harrison, Nelson shouts, my sweet lord can you sing that one for me, he held me up for years.
Nelson realised your never alone in a world with God, you just have to believe it, whether it be the light, a person, a great spirit, or a passing lord. Nelson buts in again, God is welcoming the new arrivals, giving them new spirits and a happiness that will be eternal, they are children on their first day at school full of hope and joyful, they spot Nelson, who runs over to St.Peter, what are they doing with they are following after me, Peter laughs, smiles over at God, they all want to see how your doing they bring wishes from many of your friends, amen.
