Our Pain

Your pain,  yet more my pain,
Aliandika Armando Guebuza,
Sasa kimewakumba kitu gani,
Hata kwenu mwatufukuza?

Your pain,  yet more my pain,
Tulifundishwa hadi shuleni,
Maumivu  mwenu mioyoni,
Yakawa yetu pia nchini.

Your pain,  ikawa yetu pain,
Kamwe hatukuwaacha nyuma,
Tulihamasishana nchini,
Kilimanjaro hadi Kigoma.

Your pain,  ilijaa hisia,
Sauti kali ya Kiafrika,
Yeyote iliyemfikia,
Hakika alihamasika.

Kusini kwa mto Ruvuma,
Tulijua mwateseka,
Tukawapa ofisi Nkrumah,
Ili mipango kupangika.

Our pain, never your pain,
Leo hii mwatufukuza?

Fadhy Mtanga,
