The beginning

The last splinter

Has been removed

From my heart

It’s time to go back to living

It’s time to go back to the start

My roots are growing

Back where I’ve belonged

ever since I was born

What I received needs to be given back

To my people, to my land

To pay tribute to my ancestors

For making it possible for me to be
