Beyond The Complexion

Africa my dying land
Africa the field of blood
Africa the ignorant and blind
This mythical spiritual mantra
A repetition of cultural irrational belief
Which has been prolonged from generation to generation?
For selfish desires and greediness notion
Beyond the complexen bangabantu njengathi

Some were rejected by society
and family members
Who believes the superstitious myth of albinos?
Some say their blood heals aids
and gives magical powers
Some say body parts bears
wealth and success
Some says they are a curse from the gods and spirits
Some were even dug from their graves

Some were traumatized by the brutal barbarous savages act
Some were tortured and mutilated
Some were told to be less desirable and unfit to humanity
Some people are possessed by a demon of insanity
This ideals steers even the hearts of Christianity
Who prays that the lord comes and restore unity?
While we stand and look at Africa vanishes into vanity

The mass of freedom in Africa dance in despair
This demons believes that albinos can float on water
Just because of the melanin pigmentation of their skin

In a land filled with distress depression and disaster
A land filled with agony affliction and anxiety
A land consumed by witchcraft catastrophe and irremediable calamity,
A land were blood seemed to be an emblem of wealth and success
Blood begets blood
Violence breeds violence
Homicide bears homicide
How pitiful are you to dig a pit to fill another pit
Africa... let us unite in kindness
Sow love and reap love

Oh!! Nkosi yami ngabe soneni!!?
Buyophela nini buthakathi ezweni
Bogogmkhulu nemithi, nokufunca ugazi
Nkanti alusekho olunye ucebo ngaphandle kwegazi
Nawe uthulile uthini
Beyond the complexion bangabantu njengathi,
