Tomorrow your time might come to
Be remembered; if you work hard now
We might reflect on your years gone by
And support causes under your name.
It is Nelson Mandela Day;18 July has
Been noted down in history for kind acts
And assistance. Grow your mind; aid
Someone else. The world needs such
Days - and such days should not have
To come only through having seen
One man suffer for us all to realise them.
