My connection is to Native American grandmothers past.

Grandmothers hear me now

I beg of you

Please, please tell me

What am I to do?


Is this not the place

Or is it not the time

I am talking as you asked yet

I feel like a speechless mime?


You have given me all these thoughts

I have put them all in print on white

But I see and hear the news daily

I know we have only begun the fight.


The children think no one hears them

They don’t realize they are your every thought

They think they’ve been forgotten

And fear they are not being taught.


They don’t understand they will soon inherit

That which is yet to come

If only they could hear and understand

The beating of your drum


They would understand

How very much you care

And that all they have to do is ask

And for them you will be there.


Give them the peaceful dreams

Show them how many you are

That you will be there for them

You’ll come from near and far


And maybe in their times of wakeful anger

There might shine a glimmer of hope

That you have prepared them

And given in their sleep the means to cope.


Grandmothers tell us all louder

I know I am not the only one who’s supposed to hear

But please help us to pass on your words

Before you shed another tear.


Please guide us in your ways

Please make it all so clear

Maker it ever louder

Until everyone can hear.


Oh what is it going to take

To make them all see

Our children are our future

They bring us what is to be.
