We live and laugh and cry and die
We can share and bear and without a care we fly.
We will live, learn and grow to be unstoppable.
All because they lived, they learned and had to fight against a life improbable.
Forced to read and write, to be a people without an identity.
To embrace being African kings and queens without a legacy.
We laugh, we cry and dream by choice.
Because they laughed and cried and dreamed with no voice.
