Andromeda: Ethiopian Princess

I am a woman

of these warm mountains and lacquered lakes

of the winter rains

My people are like the rich soil of this earth

dark and ancient and alive

My brothers and sisters

are responsible

for the world’s first alphabet

the Christian religion

and the very existence of humans

With pride in my every step

I stride with the queens’ blood in me

I do not forget the women

who ascended to the throne themselves

and ruled for time immemorial

I do not forget

as I am also just a woman

of these mountains and lakes
