Not today

I know that a long time ago,

When you stand for yourself,

They would shut your words,

Expecting you to follow the system,

But not now, not today, not tomorrow,

We are standing up for our rights,

Women speak, Black freedom,

The voice for all apartheid to end,

The banners, crying for Peace,

Even gays and lesbians fought for their rights,

And the humanity strive

For the speech of freedom,

And the endless list,

Many things need to sand for the right,

Freedom, Peace, Love and Understanding.
