I was born free – like a tree,
And lived the childhood with so glee.
But it was when I was brought to the knee,
I couldn’t believe what I did see – I wasn’t free…!
It was then I was judged by skin.
It was when this humanity made a sin.
It was then we fought so long.
It was when they rand this apartheid song – It was wrong…!
Inspite of being the prisoners in Robben Islands,
We neither quit our fight – nor did we raise our hands.
After years and years, our vision has come to light,
When this nation had both Black and White – With equal right…
And now it’s time to change this forever.
So that this apartheism can be heard for never…
So this is my story – I am Madiba.
Let’s strive for our glory – together for Africa…!
