Be proud of who you are
Stand before not behind your shadow
Lift thine eyes
See past your skin
Listen to your ancestors voice
Speaking within
Great Wise Nubian Kings
Honorable adorned Nubian Queens
Carved tremendous paths
Leap for that shall last!
Find no shame in being born
Of such strong admirable culture
Respect your heritage
For it flows like living waters
We've crawled,fell,sailed
Built mysteries in awe
With dislocated unhealed bones
Struggles ...gave birth...
To us as awhole
Through ancestors breaths
Of long ago
We carry forth the history of
The linking dream
