Swaziland: The true view of my country (excerpt) | Jahings Dada

My country is not white in color

My country is painted white

Swaziland is a dark black country

But so colorful

Colored white

Our voices are not heard in Africa

Our tears are not seen across the world

Our feelings are not noted in Africa

Our funerals are not counted in Africa

Our unjust imprisonments are not considered across the world

 

Are we in a different plant?

Is this Pluto

 

To Africa I sing this song

To the world I throw these words

We need a better Swaziland

We need a better country

A free Swaziland

A living, not leaving Swaziland

As we die of poverty some are dying of obesity

A true picture of my country

My country
