Where do i belong?
Which country should i call home?
They shower me with insults
The colour of my skin troubles them
I have been showered with insults
I have been told, i don’t belong here
I was born and raised in this country
I call this country, my home
The only country i know
My great-grandparents were born and groomed here
I consider myself a citizen
Allow me to exercise my rights, for, i am a citizen
My heart bleeds, for a moment when i cry out at night
Why someone would treat me like this?
Like i am nobody,
When God created humans in his own image
But still i maintain peace
When will we have peace in our land?
Where are true leaders to intervene?
Where do i deepen my skin, so i can look alike them
I want to be accepted as part of the citizens
Allow me to vote in peace
Allow me to protest
My skin colour troubles them
Where do i go from here?
This is the only country i know as home
For, i call it home
I never asked for violence
My sin, i am caught in histories
Histories, i never created
I was not there
I never oppressed anyone
Accept me for, i am
Oh! Allow me to be
for, i am a citizen.
