AFRICAN GIRL

I am a lovely butterfly
My destiny is a thorny rose
I have nothing to do
except patience and God is merciful
I suffer I cry
Then I sleep
My pain is not only mine
Even the closest ones to me
Complain of my suffering
and the stay in my cell
it’s my pain and my misery
The misery of my father
Of my mother
Of my neighbours also
O people of the world
Save me
I want my community
my brother my friend
and my family
I’m dreaming of my house
My garden and my toys
Where’s my school bag
My voice calls out
for the hymn of my country erase my tears
Bring a drink for my cough

 

GADIS AFRIKA

Aku adalah rerama cantik
Destini ku mawar berduri
aku tak boleh berbuat apa
melainkan sabar dan Tuhan maha pengasih
Aku tersiksa aku menangis
Kemudian aku tidur
Luka ku bukan milik ku seorang
Semua di keliling ku juga
Berkata tentang duka yang sama
dan terperap dalam penjara ku
ianya duka dan siksaan ku
Siksa bapa ku
Juga ibu ku
Dan jiran-jiran ku
Wahai manusia di dunia
Selamatkan ku
Aku mahukan masyarakat ku
Saudara ku sahabat ku
dan keluarga ku
Aku mimpikan rumah ku
Taman bunga dan barang-barang permainan ku
Di mana beg sekolah ku
Suara ku berteriak
Kerana lagu negara ku menyapu air mata ku
Bawakan minuman untuk ubat batuk ku
