This life, this life is full of shame.
Is this how God meant for us to live.
If I was wise, I would say this is a curse.
A sign that God is punishing us.

As I take a look back,
Our parents used to have way more fun with compared to us.
Yes, it was hard trying to live life while you were running dodging police & bullets.
But in their minds they knew what life was all about.

Today going to sleep is a mission.
You don’t know if you will make it to see another day.
We commit more sins than we seek salvation.
Yet, we still bow our head asking God for forgiveness.

Life was meant to be fun after apartheid
But now I see that we are turning ourselves into slaves
Not believing in what we could offer humanity.

There is this thing called rumours.
We spread more rumours than we believe in the truth.
Our own existence brings a sour taste in my mouth.
Our existence brings tears to my eyes.
It is like a cold story repeated over & over again.
Why do we fight each other?
Why do we kill each other?
Why is there so much hate going on?

People are angry, people are swearing but for what?
It is becoming clear every day that we are our own sworn enemy.

There is no love when it comes to black people.
We are all over the news,
We fill up the jails,
We kill each other,
Divorce rates go up every day.
But we claim that we are a united nation.
If this is not a curse then it is not the way life should be.
We want a brighter tomorrow with no guaranteed present moment.
Let’s get back to what is important before our generation is swooped off the surface of the earth.
I don’t think it is fair.

I ask God to forgive us for one sin, as a matter of fact more than one sin.
Bring life to what it used to be.
And bless the whole of Africa.
