She that Dreams

Image source: Kay Svela

She that dreams has built a nation

Her ideas the pillars and foundation

Lodged in the crevice of her imagination

She that dreams is the engine of transformation

 

She that dreams has dared to touch a heart

Her words the carriage that draws the cart

Enabling others to draw their art

She that dreams can make the water part

 

My dear Ethiopian girl and woman

Aspire to be that ‘she’ that dreams

To reach her highest height and omen

She that through her hands can hold back streams

And through her commitment to life become supreme

Be that ‘She’ that can hold and fulfill an Ethiopian dream
