I’m from Gauteng
A place of gold
A city of hope
But it can’t be described as a home
This is a place that’s famous for its rich mines
And notorious for its exploitations

I’m from a place where there are a lot of opportunities
A place that is buzzing with activities
A place of work
Where you sweat for sweet life
Where you fear when you’re outside
Stay alert and aware because it’s a jungle of hustle

This place is a hub of economy
Where there is nothing for Mahala
Tit for tat
Do for cash
Streets are busy like festivals

I’m from a place that is conflicted
Where the youth is motivated, woke, outspoken and unapologetic

I’m from a place where everything is magical
A place that can be confusing
And at times amusing.
