Confidence Monday: Makeda…

Makeda

They want to make us believe lost myths
The passages of history falsified and revised
From Ramses to Mandela, the truths that were killed
In ignoring the start, they wander aimlessly

Makeda was queen, beautiful and powerful
Solomon dreamed of her black skin
I sing to revive the memories
To dig up the knowledge
That the spiral of time erases

The queen of Sheba lives in me
Makeda lives in me.

Revive our memories
We must change history
It’s going adrift
Adrift in words… no
The knowledge and the wisdom are to be carried in our hands
Listen and observe

Makeda was queen, beautiful and powerful
Solomon dreamed of her black skin
I sing to revive the memories
To dig up the knowledge
That the spiral of time erases

The queen of Sheba lives in me
Makeda lives in me.

My people dance and sing
They exalt their joy
Far from ignorance
They show their faith

Rich in men and in value
We make up for the mistakes
Sons and daughters you and me
Ready for battle

Makeda was queen, beautiful and powerful
Solomon dreamed of her black skin
I sing to revive the memories
To dig up the knowledge
That the spiral of time erases

The queen of Sheba lives in me
Makeda lives in me.
