The New South African Struggle

This new struggle will be faught by pens and papers,
Determined minds and willing souls.
No blood must be spilled
But skills and talents should be unveiled.
Our heroes and heroines died for democracy
We will live for the liberation of intelligence.
Our ancestors never knew freedom and equality
We will mark the end of mediocrity.
Born-frees put down those guns and knobkerries
Take a little break from those blackberries.
Your weapons are the books and pens.
We are the heirs of power
Invested in our learning.
