There is a mountain
I call My Mountain,
although it does not belong to me at all.

There is a land with vast open spaces
and endless blue skies
I call My Land,
although it does not belong to me at all;

a people, numerous and diverse
I call My People,
although they do not belong to me at all.

There is a nation, its pain and dispair
its joy and hope
I call my own,
although it does not belong to me at all.

There is a place on earth
with which my soul
is inextricably entwined;
far away under burning African skies,

A place I call Home,
that does not belong to me at all.
