Break the shackles!

Break the shackles of modern-day child slavery

Break the shackles!
Enslave not the children
Pain has no gains
Put to rest old games lurked in veins

Break the shackles!
A sister with fetters
A house maid of dishonor
Forced to labour against her will
Underage, abused and in need of love

Break the shackles!
None is inferior
Black nation free yourself
Set your brother free
See him as an equal

Break the shackles!
It is time to pull each other up
With empowerment we are all stars
Time to stop self-hate and oppression
Free yourselves from self-imposed mental slavery
