ESPELHO DA LENDÁRIA CRIATURA
CARENTE DE AMOR E DE TERNURA
O ALVO NA MIRA DO DESPREZO E DA SEGREGAÇÃO
DO PAI QUE RENEGOU A CRIAÇÃO
REFÉM DA INTOLERÂNCIA DESSA GENTE
RETALHOS DO MEU PRÓPRIO CRIADOR
JULGADO PELA FORÇA DA AMBIÇÃO
SIGO CARREGANDO A MINHA CRUZ
A PROCURA DE UMA LUZ, A SALVAÇÃO!
ESTENDA A MÃO MEU SENHOR
POIS NÃO ENTENDO TUA FÉ
SE OFERECES COM AMOR
ME ALIMENTO DE AXÉ
ME CHAMAS TANTO DE IRMÃO
E ME ABANDONAS AO LÉU
TROCA UM PEDAÇO DE PÃO
POR UM PEDAÇO DE CÉU
GANÂNCIA VESTE TERNO E GRAVATA
ONDE A ESPERANÇA SUCUMBIU
VEJO A LIBERDADE APRISIONADA
TEU LIVRO EU NÃO SEI LER, BRASIL!
MAS O SAMBA FAZ ESSA DOR DENTRO DO PEITO IR EMBORA
FEITO UM ARRASTÃO DE ALEGRIA E EMOÇÃO O PRANTO ROLA
MEU CANTO É RESISTÊNCIA
NO ECOAR DE UM TAMBOR
VÊM VER BRILHAR
MAIS UM MENINO QUE VOCÊ ABANDONOU
OH PÁTRIA AMADA, POR ONDE ANDARÁS?
SEUS FILHOS JÁ NÃO AGUENTAM MAIS!
VOCÊ QUE NÃO SOUBE CUIDAR
VOCÊ QUE NEGOU O AMOR
VEM APRENDER NA BEIJA-FLOR
The fiction of Dr. Frankenstein's monster puts us face to face with our ability to repudiate what is strange and different, to deny love to what we do not understand. The strange creature, abandoned, alone, misunderstood, and given her own luck, became a fallen angel, revolted by the lack of love. But who is the real monster in this story? The disgusting-looking creature, or the creator, with his selfishness, his pride, his arrogance, and his corrupt heart?
This work will be 200 years old, but it has much to tell us about the various ills that currently erode the moral and spiritual integrity of a society where inequality is nourished by neglect, forming a generation dominated by chaos, victimized by abandonment and living at the mercy of beastly human beings who despise everything and everyone who seems to them inadequate and out of set standards. We are part of a sickly system, the creator of creatures who speak different languages ??and apparently indecipherable to the rulers, and who wander misunderstood and forgotten by the alleys, streets and alleys of this stone jungle that once was paradise.
Is there salvation? Will there be light at the end of the tunnel? Or will we carry this cross forever?
It is up to the sambistas, historically marginalized and excluded, always looked with strangeness and prejudices, persecuted by the color of our skins, by the color of our clothes, by our ancestral faith and by our drums, the alert, the resistance and the protest. The time has come to put together the fragments of our conscience that we leave in the dusty chest of our self-indulgence and sew the fantasies of the abandoned and the excluded. In this popular procession, the real monsters of our society will march without masks to be recognized and spotted on Ashes' Wednesday! Let the streets again be the great board of the plurality of our people, where the pieces will dance to the sound of a democratic batucada. May our "king" who is Momo, who represents the fun,of the people, join royalty and "pedestrians", overturn the "tower" of intolerance and checkmate the sadness. And so, the School of samba and the community, sewn there by the love of our culture, will become one body again and the samba will triumph more alive than ever; because samba is the most democratic stage of our popular culture and unites brothers from all corners and flags, celebrating differences and celebrating peace under a blue and white sky. But if you still discriminate against us and do not understand our way of being happy, do not get us wrong, the monster is you!
Let go of our carnival, after all, monster is one who does not know how to love!
The Beija-Flor de Nilópolis was born in the Christmas celebrations of 1948. A group formed by Milton de Oliveira (Negão da Cuíca), Edson Vieira Rodrigues (Edinho do Ferro Velho), Helles Ferreira da Silva, Mário Silva, Walter da Silva, Hamilton Floriano and José Fernandes da Silva, decided to form a block that, after several discussions, at the suggestion of D. Eulália de Oliveira, Milton's mother, was named Beija-Flor (inspired by the Beija-Flor Ranch, which existed in the Marquis of Valencia). Dona Eulália was admitted as founder.
In 1953, the Block Association Carnival Beija-Flor, victorious in the neighborhood, was enrolled by Silvestre David do Santos (Cabana) member of the composers' wing, as a samba school, in the Confederation of Samba Schools, for the official parade of 1954, in the 2nd group.
In his first parade in 1954, he was promoted to Group I, where he remained until 1963. After a period of ups and downs in 1974, he returned to Group I, a result of the good work done by Nelson Abraão David. In 1977, Aniz Abrahão David takes over the presidency and designs the Nilópolis Samba School as one of the most famous in the world
