Generation Change ~ Nontobeko Mathebula

There is an evolution,
a change in the atmosphere,
a shaking at the core of the earth
what was before no longer exists.



No longer are people bound by
the chains of their forefathers
nor do they succumb to their rules



A new generation has risen
from the soil of Africa
A generation of strength and power
This is Generation
Change.
