South Africa - Poem by Kholekile Monakali

This land of remembrance
This land of no-more-history
This land of the dead
My land your land our land
This land craves for water and is given blood
This land with fire in itself

Eli lizwe lenkumbulo
Eli lizwe elingasenamilando
Eli lizwe labafi
ILizwe lam, ilizwe lakho, ilizwe lethu
Eli lizwe linxanelw' amanzi lize linikw' igazi
Eli lizwe elinomlilio walo

Die land van herinnering
Die land van green-geskidenis-mear
Die land van die dooies
My land jou land ons land
Die land vra water en kry bloed
Die land wat die vuur inhomdra
