From Scars to Stars

By Ndaba Sibanda

There has to be development
You owe it to posterity
To strive for your betterment
There has to be prosperity

Didn`t the parents bear the brunt
Of cultural and social and economic
Scars of history in a sublime fashion?

There has to be development
You owe it to posterity
To strive for your betterment
There has to be prosperity
