Another Country In My Eyes

Day 2,250, 21:59 Published in South Africa South Africa by Miyagiyoda



Another Country


If we could reach beyond the bounds of blame
And make history blind
And peel away the easy balm of words
This is all we'd find:
A mother's cries, fear in an old man's eyes,
A child's blood on the walls
No easy price to pay, no harder way to fall



Another time, another place
Another country, another state of grace
You'll walk beside me, I'll tell you no lies
And then you'll see another country in my eyes



There is a place for anger, things we won't forgive
And I know it's not enough to face your shame with words you'll never live
But let's begin to look within, to where the future lies
And find the strength to live beneath another country's skies



Another time, another place
Another country, another state of grace
You'll walk beside me, I'll tell you no lies
And then you'll see another country in my eyes

One nation. One people. One vision. One future.

Amandla, Awethu.
Power to the people.
Create your destiny. Act.



TL;DR A true patriot acts for the country and not themself.

That first photo reminds me of a joke my company has used in an e-mail some years back... "We tried to think of a joke about a Gerbera. But we couldn't come up with anything. But Stralitzea's, they're hilarious!"

eBotwana? Maybe eNamibia? Nah, both are pits of filth.

My favorite eAfrican Hellhole would be eZimbabwe.

Certainly not talking (or singing) about South Africa, though. Unless it's Die Antwoord.

The yachts with Table Mountain in the back drop did it for me.
