Kkotuzwa (Children Of The Komboni*)

By Treasure

The children of the komboni

Always in the news

They’re living in the komboni

But didn’t get to choose

Now they got everything to prove and nothing to lose

 

So many people look down, on the children in the komboni

But if only they knew

The trouble they go through

But they living their cosy little life

In a suburban town where the crimes are few

 

But see the children of the komboni,

didn’t get to choose

The children of the komboni,

Have nothing to lose

 

Born at the bottom

So it’s easy to see why they feel defeat

Some don’t get to eat

The only escape they have is sleep

 

The children of the komboni

Always in the news

Where they only portrayed negatively

So they got everything to prove

 

Because one can only wonder how the world could be so cruel

The children of the komboni have creativity

Because in their minds they turned the komboni into a castle

The children of the komboni have to be strong, so they are ready for battle

 

The children of the komboni

Didn’t get to choose

They know what defeat feels like

But they don’t like to lose

 

The children of the komboni

Don’t want your pity

No…

They just going to take over your city

 

The ones that are always in the news

That have nothing to lose

And everything to prove

They going to take over your city

 

You can only hold people in oppression for so long

But no matter how much you hold them down

They’ll rise up…

So rise up children of the komboni

Because you have everything to prove.

 

*Komboni is a local name for the slums found in Zambia
