Why South Africans?
Why can’t we live in peace and silence?
Why do we always have to practise violence?
Why can’t we feel safe in our own country?
Why should we live in fear when we can live in peace?
Why can’t we listen to the pleading cries of our mothers and sisters?
Instead of avoiding and turning a blind eye.
We live in a beautiful country,
So why let our image ruin it all?
How can we just sit back and watch our economic fall?
I’m still asking South Africans,
Where are our manners?
And why do we children fail to act like learners?
Ask yourselves South Africans,
Ask yourselves.
