In my country, I see black and white being
misused as an excuse for racism and prejudice
against a certain racial group. The birds
in the sky are more civilised, why can’t we be?
In my country, I hope for a better South Africa
my forefathers fought for, their blood was shed and
their screams were heard for their grandchildren to live
in harmony and not succumb to despair.
In my country I strive for, blacks would be realised
as African and whites not be painted by the same brush
as their ancestors as a result of the past apartheid era.
