I am Not Oppressed

Young Sboniso Sangweni fiddling on the cello.

I’ve had access to a university education which my ancestors never had.

I did not experience Bantu Education like my fathers and mothers.

I live in places that were barred from me in apartheid.

I can choose whatever job, profession, career I wish to go to.

I can even choose to be an entrepreneur.

NO I am not oppressed. I refuse to listen to those voices telling me I am a victim.

NO I am not. I walk tall, proud for I remember my former oppression, but I am not confined by it.

The World is mine, and all that is in it.
