In my country, I see blue skies
that are full of possibilities
With a nation that sees the silver lining in every dark situation
A country filled with many beautiful aspects
A nation filled with heroes and heroines
A country with brilliant, bold and brave children
A country where dreams do come true

In my country, I hope for safety,
where women and children are safe to go
to work and school without constantly looking over their shoulders
Where we can all be united and not see
another African as a threat
Where we will love each other like brother and sister,
united, one big happy family.

In my country, I strive for liberation,
equality between the rich and poor
unity between the black and white
and safety for the young and old
It takes one person to change the world,
Are you that person?
