I’m from a place called Burundi
I’m from a place of war
I grew up in different countries
DRC – Rwanda – South Africa
I travelled because of the war
I could not settle in my native land

I’m from a place called Burundi
My life was in confusion
I couldn’t enjoy life in my native land
That was a sadness in my life

I’m from a place called Burundi
I have always wished to live as other people do
Who enjoy the beauty of their own country
I did not get that opportunity

I’m from a place called Burundi
But I ended up as a refugee
I learned a lot living as a refugee
Because I also love to travel and see nature

I’m from a place called Burundi
But even in my own county I don’t feel comfortable
Being a refugee is not a sin
It can be the plan of God
But I always wish to see peace in my own country

I am from a place called Burundi
My fear is to go back to my country
While the situation is still not good
From what I see and hear
People are bringing abuse in different ways

I’m from a place called Burundi
But I believe one day and hope that my country will have peace
So my people will enjoy and see the joy
Which others see in being in your own native land
