WE ARE THE SAME
[English…]
We are the same,
Whether our skin is black or white,
We are the same species.
Whether we are poor or rich
The tunes of the world sing in our head as one
As we live with joy and dreadful days.
We all are made of the same fresh and dust
Since we share the same sand
We are the same.

NA THE SAME WE BE

I fit bi blaki, mek yu no bi blak,
An we waka fron difren domot fo dis laif,
Weda yu bi man abi yu bi wuman,
Yu get moni wey I no get,
As yu go skul, I no kukuma go,
Na de sem ol of us kuku bi.
Yam wey dem gro fo Yanki, com join am with Afrika own,
Wu go no whush wan bi whush?
Fo efritin wey difren fo awa bodi,
Mek una no say, “Na de sem we bi”.

Ba mu da fuskoki daban-daban
Ba mu da bambancin daban
Ga Allah ɗaya muke yin addu’a da kallo
Allah ne wanda ya halicce mu
Me yasa muka zaba don raba wannan tsari mai albarka
Yaƙi, mugunta, kashe-kashen ba shi da daraja
Haka jini yana gudana a cikin jikinmu
Kuma ga Allah ɗaya muke yin addu’a
Muna kamar kuma mun hada, za mu tsaya.

SISI NI SAWA

Angalia angani,
Kama mimi kuangalia katika mgodi,
ni yako ya manjano, zambarau au kijani?
Sisi ni moja.
Ndiyo utamaduni tofauti,
imani tofauti,
Lakini damu moja,
One maker,
Sisi ni udongo bila ya kujali rangi, sura, urefu au umri.
Sisi ni Sawa.

– JOSEPH JASEF.

السلام عليكم،
وسلام الله واحد.
خلقنا الله
وفي ألواننا خالف.
لما الكراهية بيننا؟ لما الحرب هنالك؟ لما الرصاص يزمجر
و نحن أبناء حواء و أدم .
إن السلام بين البشر واجب!
كن مسلما، كن مسيحيا، كن بشريا.
ففي عروقنا دم واحد جارن.
السلام عليكم! إن vالسلام
واجب.

TRANSLATIONS

PIDGIN

I may be black, you may not be black,
And we came from different walks of life,
Whether You are a man or a Woman,
Whether you have money and I don’t have,
You attended a better school which I didn’t,
We all are the same.
A yam imported from abroad mixed with African’s own,
Who will know which one is which?
No matter the difference in us
We should know, We all are the same.

– Mojisola

YORUBA

We’re rainbow
Carrying different colors on our body
Black, red, white.
Many stories are written on our tongue
But we are one before
Red is the the name of blood
Which runs in our veins

– Aremo jah

____________________

HAUSA

We are not with different faces
Neither are we of different race
To one God we pray and gaze
The same God who created us
Why then have we chosen to divide this blessed set
The fight, the wickedness, the killings are not worth it
Same blood flows in our vein
And to one God we pray
We are the same and united we’ll stand.

– ME

Hawk should perch and birds on their nest_
Left hand worships right hand and it reciprocates.
God crated and beautified the world_
And used us as His pride and glory.
Shall we welcome hatred and segregation_
To truncate the assemblies of God?
We are brothers, we are sisters_
Both in body and blood.
Our languages may differ_
But believe we are one.

JUDAISKY CARES

EFIK

“All men are created equal” is what they say
we are all free but were not the same
we have been fighting for freedom for so long
we have had many victories and became strong.
We are human, however, with anger and hate
and always find ways to discriminate
whether its by race or color,
but in the end were all still brothers.
Times our different now, and we have more rights
but we all don’t see the same sights
many people are more cheerful,
but are we really all equal?

– Zim’s Pen.

Swahili

Look at Your sky,
As I look at mine,
Is yours yellow, purple or green?
We are one.
Though different culture, Different beliefs, but one man, One maker.
We are the clay
Without regard to color, shape, height or age.
We are the same.

JOSEPH JASEF

ARABIC

Peace be unto you,
And God’s peace is one.
In our colors, he made us different.
Why hatred ? Why war ?
Why bullets whistle ?
And We are Eve and Adam’s sons.
Peace among human Is needed!
Be Muslim , be Christain, be Human!
For in our veins one blood is running.
Peace be unto you!
Peace is a must!

A. Amine Fadil
