Is this the End?

16 years after we got our freedom
We still ask as South Africans
Not blinded by the recent activities around us
If we have reached the end of war
The end of apartheid
The end of discrimination
And have bridged to a rainbow nation?

Truth be told
We are not at the beginning of the end
But the end of the beginning
Lots still going
Politicians screaming unison
While the rest are fighting the struggle
A struggle against one another.
Will this ever end?

Not long ago we developed a disease
Against of fellow African brothers and sisters
Called XENOPHOBIA!
Are we really at the end of the fightings?
When will we ever call it a rest?
