Part I

I am no longer a human being
Whoonga destroyed my life
It has ruined my future
I don’t even bath, I smell like a pig
I don’t understand what kind of human being, I am
Whoonga you’re nothing
You make us poor and nothing
You’re so cruel
Look now I live the life of sorrow
The day has already gone for me
God have mercy on me and let this dark clouds get away from me
I want to live a normal live again and be like everybody
Whoonga I am useless
I am useless because of you

Part II

It is too late for mama
I feel pain inside of me
Longing for my mother
Remembering her love and caring
She advised me but I didn’t listen to her
This thoughts causes mental sufferings for me
I know that she’s the only one who can help me out of this trouble
I want to be home but I lose hope and strength
I think that it’s over for me
My dreams are shattered and dashed

Whoonga or Nyaope is a form of black tar heroin, possibly mixed with other substances, that has come into widespread use in South Africa since 2009. It’s use is concentrated in the impoverished townships of Durban, although it is claimed to be appearing in other places in South Africa as well.

Black tar heroin: is a free base form of heroin that is sticky like tar or hard like coal.

Dedicated to young People: It is foolish to smoke drugs some say they smoke drugs for refreshment, that’s is too foolish and stupidity. They don’t understand the word “REFRESHMENT”

Refreshment is the process of being refreshed in mind or body.
In other words something that gives fresh spirit, so drugs can’t refresh but they make young People to steal and die young
