A single word, different variations.
A meaning per each
An understanding par faux
In Swahili a Thank you
In Akan an Empire
To Kodzo, Consistency
To Setri, Accommodating
To Efua, Loyal
To Nigel, Daring
To Sitso, Colorful
A single word; mutiple factions
How does thou understand thee?
It certainly cannot mean a singular
But all round a peculiar
In french a representation of good health
Its origin of a certain cheer
The French in a deep wine stupor
A la santé would scream
Cheers to good health
Let’s cheer to good life.
Step back and relax Asante
I tell my mid of a name
Retourner et revivre Asante
I tell myself everyday
To discover thyself lays true
Within oneself, stay true
My family, my friends, my life
The love, surreal.
I am eternally grateful to You,
Because even through the Goth
On a golden chariot You have rode me forth
Today I am independent
But the interdependence of Me with my nature
On ne peut pas faire disparaître avec
Pour une bonne Santé
Let’s cheer to life
I have become a man
Because my experiences taught me well
Taught me how to be sober
Wild though these experiences were
“take the bull by the horn Asante,
leave no gold unturned”
My ancestors of the land of gold
Thy golden stool doth guide me thus
Life has a tricky way of testing your wits
Like the Kente clothe, it will weave your thread up, down and through
But like a master weaver a beautiful clothe it shall produce
A testament of a king or queen
You shall dance the Adowa at the end of your journey
Hard work and perseverance shall adorn you in full regalia
And the fruit of your labor shall decorate your feet.
So Asante – Thank you
Say thank you for every experience and every commodity you have
Because it is this experience and commodity that make you who you are
A la santé – Cheers
A cheer for each time you’ve stayed true to yourself
Even when society tried to mold you into a demon of yourself
Asante – an Empire
Be an empire, conquer each conquest
And expand your dream even in the desert places
“So when they say it’s over for you, they see you shining”.
