PLACE OF MY BIRTH

Mother of us all, place of my birth
She has been stripped, she has been beaten, and she has lost her worth
Her womb has been poisoned from the rape of her soul
Mother of us all, place of my birth
She has been shackled and shot down like a kitchen kaffir
If you listen you can hear her cries, bitter than ever
Mother of us all, place of my birth

Mother of us all, place of my birth
Man made myths; distorted reflections of the truth, keep her isolation
Her seeds have scattered violently in winds of desperation
Mother of us all, place of my birth
Cursed form the semen, conceived without a future or a tomorrow
We all bear witness as she nurtures a cradle of sorrow
Mother of us all, place of my birth

Mother of us all, place of my birth
How can we stand aside and witness while she bathes in shame
Some robbed her of her halo, some say she is beyond redemption
Mother of us all, place of my birth
