I wrote this poem exactly seven years ago, it was either written 7 years too early or God placed it in my heart to write about the tribulation that was coming for us. Only God knows the truth about that, I am sharing this testimony behind this poem that I wrote two months before I became homeless for two years. But my guzo (journey) did not end with tribulation, I found purpose and joy through my hardship.
As life turned around for me, I pray it happens for Ethiopia and all of humanity. For all the non-Ethiopians who are regular readers of the Ghion Journal, I am focusing on my birthland for the moment because a genocide the size and scale of Rwanda is potentially weeks away as malicious serpents who pretend to be public servants are leading Ethiopians to a slaughterhouse. We are reaching an inflection point of sorts, now is the time we put aside our differences and unite as human beings or else we will reach our final solution.On this day that we give thanks, I send this good news. Even if you're alone & judged by the world, it matters not as long as you know you're loved by Igzihabier. This kind of love within is how we #HealEthiopiaTogether Click To Tweet
I pray we come together for our sake, for the sake of our children and future generations. Read the words entailed in the poem below with full intention, where you find Amharic words, let this be an occasion to reach out to an Ethiopian online or in-person and ask them to translate it for you. On this Thanksgiving, let us find gratitude in solidarity and hope in love that is ever-lasting. May God bless my birthland Ethiopia, my adopted home America and all of humanity::
“ለአራቱም እንስሶች ለእያንዳንዳቸው ስድስት ክንፍ ነበሯቸው፤ በዙሪያውም ከክንፉ በታች የሆኑ ዓይኖች ተሸፍነው ነበር። ቀንና ሌሊት፡- ማለታቸውን አያቆሙም። ” ቅዱስ፣ ቅዱስ፣ ቅዱስ ሁሉን የሚገዛ ጌታ አምላክ ነው::” ~ Revelation 4:8
