It’s such a sad world out here
We are losing our women bit by bit
Off to predators, rapists and abusers
Who think they’ve got a right to her body
But yet again
Our world shuts them out of the door
And slams it really hard in their faces
They are lost in the wilderness

But when a so-called famous somebody’s daughter gets killed
Hashtags are brought up to her name
The world then remembers our women, who have been shut outside
We fight for ‘imbokodo’ all in the name of the forsaken justice
Only for a day let me remind you
Then the facade ends and we return to our normal lives
And we ignore the truths about our normal women
Women who fought during the apartheid era are no longer recognised in society
And there’s temporary bliss when they are remembered
Because we surely ignore truths for temporary happiness
