My Tribe is South Sudan by Edward Luka

My brother, my sister
My neighbor, my co-worker
My in-law, my countrymen
My visitor, my friend, my lover
My tribe is South Sudan 
 
Call me Poni, call me Deng
By which I’m known to you
Call me Lam, call me Gatluak
Are all my names – true 
 
But:
My tribe is South Sudan
My tribe is South Sudan
My tribe is South Sudan 
 
 When I go to work
Or jog in the streets
When I pass by the markets
Or sleep under the trees
My tribe is South Sudan 
 
I am a South Sudanese
Not known by my tribe
I am a South Sudanese
And me don’t try to bribe
Because:
My tribe is South Sudan
My tribe is South Sudan
My tribe is South Sudan
 
Don’t look at the marks
Or the cuts on my face
To set me apart
Or classify my race
My tribe is South Sudan
 
Together let us build
Our country, our identity
Let us choose peace,
Love, harmony and unity
 
Therefore:
I am a South Sudanese
I am a South Sudanese
I am a South Sudanese 
 
And
#iChoosePeace, 
 
Do you?
