An Amapiano-inspired reflection of the resilience of the Black diaspora and a contemplation on what it means to call a place home.


A home away from home

A land I hardly know

The soil that drinks our tears

The hand that brought me here

Place me
Somewhere where I belong

Sing me
Your memory in song

Tell me
That we can overcome

Kiss me
And tell me I am someone you could love

Give me
Your promises of light

I know that I'm not
A child of wealth or might

But I’ve built highways
And towns to travel through

Crossed hills and valleys
To mend the broken parts of you

See me
My journey isn't done

And count your blessings
Of children yet to come

Here in my Homeland
The dream they’ll rise above

If you just you kiss me
And tell me I am someone you could love
