Power in the Blood

By Baba Louis Alemayehu

The reason we still here,

Is cause we been here

Sooooo long!

Things at rest tend to stay put,

Now that’s a curse & salvation child.

We may not know every hair on the head of our history,

But we know what’s underneath the skin

And pulses inside.

We ah deep, deep people,


Like a river

Through time…
