In memoriam - Lee Siba Mothibe

April 4, 2020

We mourn the death of transgender activist and pageant director Lee Siba Mothibe, who passed away at the young age of 35.

Lee Siba passed away on March 30, the day before the International Transgender Day of Visibility. She recently revealed that she’d been suffering from Kaposi Sarcoma cancer since 2017.

She was a wonderful member of our community and a great inspiration for the trans community around the world.

 

 

We will fight

 

Maybe someday we can be alive
Just hold on tight
Put away the knife
And together we will fight

 

We will fight for our lives
and welcome our deaths
When our time is torn to shreds
And we only have moments left
We will use them and we'll live them
even though we're dying
Cause that's all life is for us
Being punished for trying

Maybe someday we can all smile
A tear falling down
We can feel for a while
We will swim before we drown

We will fight for our years
and welcome each hour
For once we will have the power
to cherish our wasted time
We‘ll reuse it, we'll relive it
even though we're dying
Cause that's all life is for us
Being tortured for trying

If we could have one moment
Just one to show our love
So we can all say goodbye
For us that is enough
For we don't need much time
We're used to thoughts and dreams
But we'll fight and we will climb
We will show you our extremes

But if we're in a war
of which we can not win
We will open that one door
and our heaven can begin
And we'll dance there
and we'll live there
After all that dying
Cause that's all life was for us
Being released after trying
