We Will Live (short)

The mountains are grey and the valleys are green.

There are days and nights.

We will live.


The sun burns the back of those on the fields.

The rocks cut the soles of our bare feet.

We will struggle.


The baked earth crumples into dust as we plough.

Our sweat waters the earth.

We will labour.


Our fathers die in their struggle for the promise.

Our mothers cry in pain.

We will stand.


Blood flows through our veins.

Tears fall from our eyes.

We will survive.


Stare down in our bruised hearts.

Roam in our heads.

We will live.
