My heart aches for I am in a nation in pain
It feels like I am being flogged with a cane
Each day I see my country’s flaw
If only it is just a flaw and not a tumour
The land of our ancestors is not in place

Our love for one another misplaced
Religion and politics tearing us apart
Because of our different views and ideas
We have forgotten why it was made back in those days

Religion to bring us closer to God
Politics and government to put us to order
Yet serpents have paved their way into our midst
Turning us into thieves of our own dreams

Why can’t we just leave our differences aside for now
to restore our country’s pride
We need to strive or at least try
Or else the future will be bad
