Jacques Sprenkie Mateya
I heard a voice in my dreams
When I Wake up it was there no more
I looked around and there was no one
I said speak! Voice of freedom
Speak! Voice of reconciliation
Please speak again
Speak for yourself
Be bright like owls eyes
Speak about African renaissance
Speak about moral regeneration
Speak about poverty alleviation
Be proud of your Africanism
Tell a tale of trio
Tell us about substance abuse
Tell them about tribal and racial discrimination
Tell us about RDP of mind
Tell them about cultural diversification
Tell us a tale of our forefathers
Let your voice be heard
And embrace life
Worn! About HIV/AIDS
Worn! About terrorism in Africa our land
Worn! About missing children and police killing
Please don't quit
Until your voice is heard
Harmonize peace process
Ask where Constable Fransis Rasuge is?
Ask why Gugu Dlamini was stoned to death?
Ask what to happened Tshepo Matloga?
Ask what was the motive for Chris Hani's death?
Ask death why it took Nkosi Johnson
In our life time
Speak to the mindset
Speak to entire human race
