Land Of My Fathers

Malawi

Malawi

Father has moved me to a land not of my fathers,
A land where I’m seen as a murderer, a rapist, a thief,
Still we stay here,
A land where I’m hated for making a living for myself,
Hatred the price I pay for making these few pence,
Father has moved me to a land not of my fathers,
A land where one is questioned when I utter a different tongue from that, that they utter,
A land where having a normal skin tone is different to the native dwellers,
A land where mating with those not of my land is seen as witchcraft,
Loving in this land is difficult,
Feelings in this land I cannot express,
Father has moved me to a land not of my fathers,
A land of my fathers, where my fathers’ fathers lay I wish to die,
