We are the new generation,not afraid to be us
empowered to be change-makers
uniquely gifted,black and talented,shining like stars
we are,we are the African children.
strong words you may say,we’ve got to live
this life without fright,sleep peacefully at night
we have the right.,right to expression,right to access
information,right to education .Its my right ,your right ,our rights
But still we’re ,terrorised,victimised
tears couldn’t dry with a loud cry,out to seek the gift
of a life time,seeking ,longing for refuge,the torture to no end.
On this day again ,16 june not may
we got strayed away,on this day again ,we stop the pain
we clean those tears of rain,we grow strong ,beyond
beyond what’s known.
we ask if only our rights could be respected,
for us to be accepted,we would fly,aspire and dream.
we would thrive for we are and you are an African child
duties and responsibilities of parents,government
teachers and friends ,join our hands to bring up smiles
with faith in life reflected in their eyes for they are
and I am an African child!!!!!!!!
