Don't say bye... (Zareef Minty)

This is my poem on #AccessMustRise and our South African Youth:

With tears dripping down your ambitious cheeks

With pain in your stomach and fear in your heart

Asking for validation and answers in the streets

When the state and its people are worlds apart

All you want is a better life, a refurbished future

Give your mom a CA smile and belief we are the future

But they don’t want to listen

They think old ideologies will keep us neat

Solar, forex and transformation is what we preach

But they don’t listen because liberal emancipation is not their key

We are a generation that wants to eliminate financial exclusion

With every student that walks away, walks with him a dream

A sense of progress, growth and relief

A sense of utopia

Come back future star

Don’t say bye
