23 years ago, on this date:

A big group of us has been identified,
6 days of public killings, they were not yet satisfied,
but through the elder among us, I’ve been notified,
I was really terrified,
but with God’s help, I thought about the escape, I tried,
and it worked but the future of the rest has been nullified,
the growth of the babies who knew nothing has been denied,
the role people had in the society has been simplified,
they’ve been killed and horribly buried,
some people celebrated while others including me cried,
I knew and still remember that I should have died, because everyone else died

except me and now here I am, there’s a very special reason, a very special mission…

Yewe muvandimwe,

Buri munota aba ari umwanya ngo ngukumbure
Umunsi wari wiswe uw’ihumure
Sinibwiraga ko ari bwo ndi bukubure
Burira bugacya ntumenya uwo muri buhure
Ntunamenya icyo muri buhure

Cyangwa ngo ni ryari muri buhure
Barabugutwaye, ntibwanagurwaga ngo umuntu abugure
Twatunguwe no kubona abashyitsi tutari twiteguye ko bari budusure
Tuti: “wenda ku bw’amahirwe ibikomere byacu baraje babivure”
Naho ubwicanyi bari baje ngo babuzure

Nanjye ngo babuzure, nako babusubukure
Batubeshye ihumure
Ngo tujye hamwe banzure
Twese bakureho bakubure
Byasaga n’ibidashoboka ngo umuntu ahikure

Barahutazaga, barasenyaga, ntibanakomangaga nibura ngo umuntu akingure
Bari buzuye hose, kubacika? ni he wari bunyure?
Ubumuntu muri bo bwari kure ya kure
Ngo Kagame yagiye ari muto, nta wundi bazemerera ngo akure
Ngo bazashyira hasi twese barimbure

Mbere y’umunsi nk’uyu wo muri 1994 benshi mu banzi
Icyo gihe ntibari banzi
Abatari banzi
Ubu ntibari kuba banzi
Ku bw’amahirwe sinari kugira abanzi

Kuko ubu bari kuba batanzi.
