Since We Must Live

(Livicated to Claude McKay)

Since we must live, let it be like Deities
Sacred and infinite in all our glory
While beneath us squeak the mad and hungry vermin,
Ignorantly they mock our deified lot.
Since we must live,
O let us nobly live,
Allowing our precious energy to be revered
In eternity; then even the monsters we outlive
Shall be constrained to marvel at our immortality!
O kinsmen! we must greet the common ally!
Though far outnumbering foes let us show us grateful,
And for their thousand caresses deal one life-aim!
As before us lies the kingdom of heaven!
Being Neter we greet our aeternal, courageous companions,
Sanctified with truth, while living right!!!

The Mhotep Corporation uses its Keyamsha The Awakening brand to heighten perceptions and expand awareness. By producing content that engages, entertains and educates we create value for value relationships with our audience for mutual benefit. Mhotep is derived from the name of the architect and builder of the first pyramid in Kemet, so-called ancient Egypt. I formed the Mhotep Corporation in 2003 to produce and distribute 3D animation videos based on traditional African stories. Since then it has evolved to being a media production company including books. In a previous life I worked as a systems analyst developing solutions for government and multinational organizations. Born and educated in Washington, D.C. I have traveled to several places including Haiti, the Bahamas, Mexico, Canada, Nigeria (several times), Ethiopia (several times), Benin, Togo, and South Africa. I am married with three children.
