I’m Ashamed !!

I’m ashamed :

I’m ashamed because I’m always on about being a proud African yet I know English more than my home language SeSotho.

I’m ashamed because I felt good when people from Qwaqwa said ke “ngwana wa ho tswa makgoweng”.They treated me like I was a special package.

I’m ashamed because I know a white man’s compliment means more and his invitation to a party with class would mean the world to me.

I’m ashamed because my African name embarrasses me.

I’m ashamed because my dreams,goals & fantasies falls under a white class.I want to be who I’m not suppose to be.

I’m ashamed because I know nothing about my tradition.All fancy things took my attention.

I’m ashamed because I do nothing about my shame.I’m doing nothing to protect my roots.

I’m only proud that I identified my shame & restructured my desires.

Can we know who we are & stop following a strangers foot steps !?!
