Wake up you sleepy youth
Wake up from your imagination
Can’t you see you’re perishing?
Where is the spirit of your forefathers
Who sacrificed their lives for you?
Don’t you read books about the Soweto Uprising?
Sharpeville Massacre?
District Six?
Wake up sleepy youth of this country
Fight for what you want
Build your own legacy
Our parents did their part
It’s up to you to grab the bull by its horns
It’s hard now
But you do have resources
And energy
Use your intelligence and wisdom
In building a country
Country that you want it to be
Shape your future
As well as the future of your children
And the generation to come
It’s all in your hands
