Man of your work
Everyone saw it
Everyone felt it
Man of your word
You all made history
Inspired little ones to just be
Regardless of colour or creed
You are apart of that, it’s apart of your legacy
Your word was never overshadowed by money, fame nor greed
Now we all hope you are resting in peace
We hope you are flying high and feel free
Thank you for inspiring a generation
