The Importance of a Rainbow
It was on a long walk home
he taught us:
to look for the light in falling rain;
to read between segregated lines;
to act in courage in the face of rage;
to use benevolence to survive the inhumane.
It is on our long walk home,
that we embrace our vitality
by looking to our rainbows.
For Nelson Mandela with love and gratitude.
