I’m from a place
A beautiful place
Where the grass is forever green

The streets are busy and every corner polluted!

I’m from a peaceful place
Peaceful from xenophobia and racism
Where skin colour is just for decoration not discrimination

But the peace is always interrupted
By our action movie
Oh, its called ‘GANG WAR’
Bang Bang!!
He is dead!
That’s an end to every weekend.

I’m from a place
Where hustling and bustling is our daily bread
The place where money opens doors that were previously closed and education would open them

You see I’m from a place where my sisters sell their soul for a quick fix
Where brothers kill for R10
Where fathers brutally beat kids for being hungry
Mothers are killed by their own kids because of life insurance

Welcome to our beautiful Kraaifontein
