I’m from a place where everyone wakes to the sound of the crowing cock
Where hunger is like the background music on a radio

I’m from a place where the young generation don’t care about education
Where becoming a local champion or the greatest hunter is the only motivation
Those streets never smell the burning fumes of an ignition but are filled with dust

I’m in a place which I once never knew existed because it was beyond my existence
I’m in a place where now the young generation
All they care about is education
Dreaming of greater success
Flexing their bling earned through blessings

I’m in a place filled with racial differences that bring about divisions
A man looks down upon his brother because of where he comes from
Taking another man’s life seems to be easier than taking another man’s slice

I’m in a place
Yes, that place is called Durban
