Hope Hope

Hope! Hope!
(By B.Bellete)

When___Clouds slid-over and over
From the right horizon to the left
Zillions of Sun rays shower me
Hope! hope! hope! such a joyful light!
I see what I could see
Tomorrow be sunny
Hope is my mighty

When___My sorrow submerges beneath
To the surface of comfort
The darkness run away, for good
By the long goodbye kiss to the past
I see what I could see
Tomorrow be sunny
Hope is my mighty

And when_____I attempt to hop up
From the far reach hope unto the near reality
My life crowns with love
And flickers as the midnight summer's beauty!
I see what I could see
Tomorrow be sunny
Hope is my mighty.

Pharaohs


Hieroglyphics could be the best source of investigating tools where to find out the Ethiopians presence in the amazing ancient Egyptian civilization. When I come across to the meaning of some hieroglyphics like 'qeter' for time, 'woha' for fish, truly admired the person who strives to unlock the mystery from that unique and unusual writing system. But he just picked out the sea animal for 'woha' instead of the water and 'qeter' for time, where as its real meaning in todays Ethiopian language is noon. Even some of the ancient ceremonial practices such as burial are parallel with what we can see in Ethiopia today. I am a firm believer that the Pharaohs, the sciences and their languages had been pure Ethiopian, but nothing else.

'About eight hundred years before Christ, the Ethiopian armies began invading Egypt. They were not powerful adversaries, but there was no united power to oppose them. Year after year they won their way further down the Nile, re-assimilating the Egyptian culture as they advanced. They became the chief rulers of upper Egypt. And at length we find the proud record of their king, Piankhi, stating that the princes of lower Egypt, who were at war among themselves, appealed to him as a protector. He assumed the title of Pharaoh, and marching from end to end of the land reduced it all to obedience (727 B.C.). Even the priesthood thankfully accepted him as the one man who could bring order out of all the turmoil. He was crowned at Thebes with all the ancient ceremonials. A Libyan captain had already sat upon the proud throne of the ancient gods; now it was held by an Ethiopian.

More than one of the Pharaohs of this Ethiopian dynasty are mentioned in Bible history. The most important of them after Piankhi was Taharqua, the Biblical Tirhakah. Neither he nor any other ruler succeeded in establishing much authority over the fighting princes, Libyan and Egyptian, who dwelt in the Nile delta, but Tirhakah did gather them all for an incursion into Palestine. There he made alliance with King Hezekiah of Judah and with King Luliya of Tyre, and defeated and plundered the cities which opposed him. He thus brought down upon himself the wrath of the conquering Assyrians, who had seized Syria and Israel, and who objected to having any one but themselves thus snatch the spoils of Asiatic war.'
