A Man Has Lived by Joseph Inter Da’Poet Mabena

A man has lived
Through the walks of life a warrior was born to defend
A man has lived
Lived to offend and make amends
A king soft spoken lived to never lie nor pretend
He was soldier trained to protect and to the world as a gift he was sent
Each day a man lived like an angel and to the chaos of the world he came to attend
Inhaled all the spiritual pollution to exhale spiritual salvation

A man has lived to feel
Feel love,feel pain,feel anger and within all,
Still feel strong knowing that his soul will heal
A man has lived
Lived to enjoy laughter,enjoy romance
Enjoy some slow dance
For he understood that every minute should be lived as a special moment
A moment of bliss
A man has lived to share
Share wisdom in abundance,share space,share water,share fire and all the earth’s natural resources
And all was done in the name of fairness
A man has lived to care,
Care for his family,care for his friends
Care for the animals,care for the plants
For everything in creation was made for mankind’s sustenance
A man has lived for change
Lived for freedom
Lived for peace
Lived for rights of equality
Because in humanity unity exists

A man has lived to pray
Pray to the Ancestors
Pray to Buddha
Pray to Allah
Pray to Jah
Pray to God
Because although the flesh may perish
The gospel in his poetry and his soul shall continue to be cherished
