Mother of A Nation

She was a queen,

First Lady,



A souldierette for the

Cause of apartheid.

Educated in social work when

She met the love of her life,Nelson

Who was a lawyer.


When Madiba was locked down

She held it down

And fought by any means necessary

She kept her sanity even when

Confined for over a year.

Forced to move from home to home

Keeping her offspring protected away

From the madness of being watched and

Taunted by the government.

No, she wasn’t perfect

Made mistakes that even her and Nelson were

Not proud of.

She was a First Lady,

Mother of our nation.

Mrs.Winnie Mandela.
