After a long day, Vivienne goes to the rehearsal room to do something that always makes her happy– singing. She starts to sing a beautiful song from a play she once did. Sure it may not be a happy song, but singing makes her happy, and it’s a beautiful song. Though she knew it would have been fun to actually sing it in the play. She knew she had a beautiful voice, but she didn’t understand why she didn’t get solos.
“Fatse leso lea halalela. Fatse leso lea halalela,” she begins. She looks around and continues.
“Shadowland, the leaves have fallen.
This shadowed land, it was our home.
The river’s dry. The ground has broken.
So I must go. Now I must go.
And where the journey may lead me, let your prayers be my guide.
I cannot stay here, my family, but I’ll remember my pride.”
She hears clapping and turns around, but she continues singing because the song is not done yet.
“And where the journey may lead me, let this prayer be my guide.
Though it may take me so far away, I’ll remember my pride.
Ngizo buyabo, ngizo buyabo.
I will return, I will return, besobo.
Ngizo buyabo, I will return, ngizo buyabo.
Oh, ngizo buyabo. Besobo, my people, besobo.”
She turns to the person clapping. “Hi,” she said. ”How did you like it?”

Honestly, why do people judge? People need to learn to accept. To look past race, gender, age, sexuality, and appearances. To be open-minded. To give people a chance. To rid their hearts of hate and learn to love others for who they are. That is my wish.
