The Ambessa Queen

Source

*Suttle Emotions*

Queen to a thousand kings who share her silhouette

warrior's, bound by capitalism, stretched forth against landscapes of rage, pain, vicious discrimination,

bitterness on terror driven tears, watered by the depth of history

embittered, frozen by her memories, she bares the scars of a thousand knights who bled on fields of thorns and strife.

Shattered monuments no longer able to bare the weight of broken dreams,

support the weight of political fraudulent social extremes, she is the warrior queen.

Let the lions roar and the lioness give birth to a mighty nation,

as her dreams beat against the churn of time, she gathers her kings from the four corners of the earth,

shattering misconceptions of a broken nation unblessed, baring the weight of humanity upon her breast, while building new monuments for her kings to rest.

Let the wars cease and new nations give birth to peace, trampling down mountains that no longer have peeks,

whispering to a new dawn on distant streams, wake up my kings from your deep soundless dream, and pay homage to your Ambessa Queen.
