On this day, we witness the end of a sojourn
The sojourn of a legend
A man whose accolades can last a lifetime to proclaim
To share a motherland with him is indeed an honour
A man from Ghana but a man for the world
His clear strong voice rang true
In times of war, calling for peace
In regions of dire need, calling for compassion
Beyond everything else, the world will remember his humility yet poise
His calm yet firm demeanour
And his desire and action to see humanity progress in peace
Rest well legend
Rest well son of the motherland
Rest well Citizen of the World
Rest in Perfect Peace, Mr. Kofi Annan.
This is indeed, the home going of a legend!
