The Cry of Anene Booysen – [The 17 yr old Raped and murdered]
When a three year old, Is penetrated by evil so cold
The time has come to say, We need to take another way
I believe in hope, I believe in prayer
And yes, I believe God can take us there.
We boast to be powerhouse of Afrique
Yet our crime and rape stat shows us worse than freaks.
Statistics say, 180-360 rapes in one single day,
But dear Lord, This we pray.
Please turn around the crime in this our land,
Otherwise we will die, because for freedom we stand
I guess Anene she cried,
And I guess she screamed
But they didn't care,
all they wanted was for her to be creamed.
Insanity, Insanity Yes this is
For where in the whole world do you find people like these
Cruel animals, without a heart,
And now Anene's photo has become Art.
We call on you Jacob Z,
Yes we call on you to see.
The pain, the hurt and the blood
THE TIME HAS COME TO PLAY YOUR PART
Enough is enough
Yes we have seen it all,
If this does not change,
We are in for the biggest fall
We want the ANC, DA, IFP
We want the FFP, ACDP
We want them all to come and agree
What you see is what I see
Rape has not excuse
And there's no excuse for abuse
We want bail to be denied
For the Blood Anene has cried [Gen 4:10]
South Africans is Failing South Africa.
Nelson Mandela said, let there be freedom for all
For we see, but we don't perceive
That crime is slowly taking all our belief.
Never, never, and never again shall it
be that this beautiful land will again
experience the oppression of one by
another and suffer the indignity of
being the skunk of the world.
Yet rape is taking our children one and the other
What is your response I ask you then....
Lord today, this we pray
That you help us on this sad and hurtful way
For alone we can never succeed
So today, to your call we heed
nkosi sikelel' iafrika
Let Us NEVER forget the cry of Anene's blood and all the others who have been silenced by rape, abuse and murder.
