Day 30: Amanam

"Amanam" (sounds like /harmattan/) is the
Ibibio word for "Bravo!" "Good job!"


Amanam
And so I give you a hand
Cause you held your own like a man
You stood strong in your faith
And achieved the miracle of moving mountains
You sneered in the face of fate
And accomplished victories and still counting.

Amanam
Even opposition knows you can
You came from so very far away
Piercing dark clouds like a star
And the world can no longer wait.

Amanam and so I give you a hand.
