Mama who art upon the earth
You gave me life, you gave me love
Let me acknowledge the womb
Where I was conceived
With painful pride
Your presence is a living drama
Living drama of a race
Drama of flesh and blood

You accepted me on your lap
And let me open your womb
The fortune of your birthhood
And let me suckle your breast
Before they became human history

You floated deep seas in stormy days
You held your shoulders
To the Earth’s foundation.
Mother, friend and guider.
Because of you
I am what I am.
