Your beautiful, powerful poetry and your lifelong fight against racism, apartheid and social injustice will never be forgotten. It will always be an inspiration.
I am a rebel and freedom is my cause
Many of you have fought similar struggles
therefore you must join my cause:
My cause is a dream of freedom
and you must help me make my dream reality:
For why should I not dream and hope?
Is not revolution making reality of hopes?
Let us work together that my dream may be fulfilled
that I may return with my people out of exile
to live in one democracy in peace.
Is not my dream a noble one
worthy to stand beside freedom struggles everywhere?
