From the lands across the sea,
To the bottom of the ocean floor.
Dwells the spirit of an African nation.
By forces of Empire-building.
Living on the earth has made her strong.
Her inner light shines in the morning sun,
Like gold mined from the cavern of the Soul.
A presence resonates in her heart.
On her tongues, spewing from her pores.
She has reclaimed the lost spirit of an African nation
Blood mixed with all manner of people,
Bubbles to the surface,
Sizzles on an open flame
Burning for over two thousand years
Spent poison has been released
Like a covering over the earth
Shields life from the cold harsh climate of winter
Black Panther Nation is on the prowl
Coming out from the mountains and low lands
Finds a piece of earth
Settles in for the night
Awaits the morning
For its earthly forage.
The desire for power corrupts, destroys people and undermine their psychological health.
On the New Earth
Their is a new understanding of what is good.
A new understanding of knowledge,
How you want to live?
A belief in the Universal Bond that connects us ALL
Woman Shape Relationships
A key concept associated with “Ubuntu” is how we behave and interact in our various social roles, e.g., daughters traditionally greet their parents and serve them food as a sign of respect and maintain the highest standards of behavior that will be extended or reflected to her family and all the women raised in that family. The daughter is an ambassador. She functions and play that role always. However, this does not apply only to daughters but to all women in general, even among friends and equals such as brother and sister.
Other manifestations of Ubuntu are that it is taboo to call elderly people by their given names; instead, they are called by their surnames. This has the effect of banishing individualism and replacing it with a representative role, in which the individual effectively stands for the people among whom he comes from at all times.
The individual identity is replaced with the larger societal identity within the individual. Thus, families are portrayed or reflected in the individual and this phenomenon is extended to villages, districts, provinces and regions being portrayed in the individual.
This places high demands on the individual to behave in the highest standards and to portray the highest possible virtues that society strives for. ” Ubuntu ” embodies all the invaluable virtues that society strives for towards maintaining harmony and the spirit of sharing among its members.
