“Prince of the Ghetto:

They despise me because I'm common.
They reject me because I fight for the ghetto.

Let me tell you about the shanties.
Let me tell you about the ghetto.

Violence does not frighten us.
Reality does not intimidate us.

At birth, our portion is sorrow.
At birth, our portion is death.

We see what others do not.
We hear what others do not.
We feel what others do not.
We experience what others do not.

We laugh but there is pain in our laughter.
We sing but there is distress in our songs.
We dance but there is agony in our steps.

The world was built on our backs.
The world was built on our tears.
It was built on our misery.
It was built on our blood!

We are sons.
We are daughters.
We are mothers.
We are fathers.

We are the poor.
We are the wretched.
We are your problem.
We are the ghetto.”
Matshona Dhliwayo
