Nature naturally birth, all things are created magnificently
Your womb carries the fecund, fertile, fruitful offsprings
Of the Universe entirely in your kindness
The rising sun cast a rosy hue across the morning sky
Golden fingers of sunlight light up the scene
It's an elegant fantasy fathom with a cool breeze hitting the waves
Trees dancing zip back and forth head
Humming and chipping birds chanting melodies of wonder made science
It appears like God's Grace is shining through the sky
Beautiful rays glowing over the mountains with the promise
Absence of aerosols at dawn in the Eastern sky
Remains a scattered reddish light above the fringe

The culture is varied and manifolds consisting
Of a mixture of countries with various tribes
Tribes that are Unique roaring loud like the king of the jungle
Proclaiming and declaring ownership
it is a product of a diverse population that inhabit
The continent of Africa amazingly
lt holds the existence of the human soul
The soul that does not die with the body
Umuntu ngumuntu ngabantu
A common language, song that we pledge in whole
The customers of each group in your hands have been
Woven into a tapestry as colorful and diverse as its people

Aaah Arica a land of freedom and hospitality
As brutal,as bittersweet, as tender and
As tense as first love itself
You are born ready to lose your virginity in strive of your children
Guttural cries of pain caused by the wicked
Still no matter how deep it is you rebel aggressively
Like a volcano erupting from MountKhilimanjalo in defense
It is through relationships with 'self' that is not separated from the world
Your pure heart and flawless ways dominantly provoking
Unity and intermingling with nature and community
The individual that becomes a person of volition
A land that's just like a mother's love and hardships

Amabhetshu ,umutsha isicholo ;How can we forget to adorn you majestically
Foes become green as your heartbeat of delight
Drums beaten as to burst, whistles blown out  as loud as they can be
Proud women ululating gracing your dominance
Smoke calling out to those behind mountains from East to West
Assembled in uniform to listen to your teachings around an enormous fire
Giggles and laughter make your heart melt
A land of milk and honey where
They shall hunger and thirsty nomore
Your embrace is tighter than a lover's
Provides closure and assurance
Heads bowed and knees knelt to praise and worship forever
