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.
