Mandela's Mantra

Mandela's Mantra

I am a Note. I am Harmony.

I am a Vote. I am a President.

I am a felon. I am famous.

I am aware.

I am that, I am.

I am genesis. I am genius.

I am consciousness. I am unstoppable.

I am reason. I am resilience.

I am Africa.

I am a Soul. I am Resonating.

I am a smile. I am a force.

I am confident. I am character.

I am aware that controlling systems do not control me.

I am that, I am.

I am a lotus. I am a lily.

I am a lion. I am a llama.

I am sand. I am the season's solstice.

I am Africa.

I am prosperous. I am persistence.

I am reason. I am the voice from within.

I am vibration. I am forgiveness. I am love.

I am aware that I cannot let others define me.

I am that, I am.

I am in service to the human race.

I am achieving my dream even after disgrace.

I am a positive impact.

I am aware.

I am that, I am.
