This is not what Tata Madiba fought for
This is not what the youth of 1976 fought for
Tears of sorrow daily
Why are they killing us?
Nobody deserves to be abused
This is unfair

“To be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains,
but to live in a way that respect and enhances the freedom of others.”
Those were the words of Tata Madiba
But heartless men are killing us
Raping us
Abusing us
Stop it!
We are human beings
We have feelings too

This is not what youth of 1976 fought for
Families are grieving the loss of their children
Our tears of sorrow are the joy of perpetrators
Stop it!
Stop abusing us!
Youth of 2017 are weak, scared and afraid
Let us fight for a new world
A decent world
