I am from a place full of caring, loving people
Full of violent people
Where if you don’t have
You worry not because umakhelwane uzokunana
I am from a place where if someone dies
Neighbours warm you with love and support
While some of them laugh others do it out of love.
I am from a place where when you wake up on a Saturday morning,
bath, dress up and comb your hair they ask,
I am from a place called “home of many talents”
Where we have a movie called Umlazi Gangster.
A category called acapella but “ayi yona kuphela”
I am from a place full of driven people
Some with inspiring motives
And some with big ideas that slowly kill them one by one.
