AND STILL I RISE

Different people from different countries,

Sitting together

Homeless people

Wearing ragged clothing

AND STILL I RISE

Crying children

Desperate for food

Orphan child

AND STILL I RISE

Sound of desperation

Taste of determination

Explosion of landmine

Smell of death

AND STILL I RISE

 

Rap from young refugee from the Congo, created for the Te Papa Museum, Wellington, New Zealand
