Again "Fire in his spirit" speaks,
Hush, Listen, Hear


I listened

as

The story unfolded

of the man that was once

so strong, so brave, so free

 

They brought you down

with the rifles

resounding blows

They,

with blood lust eyes

cut you down

They thought to extinguish

all red man and his kin

all that was of

the red man with-in

They sought to kill each of us

leaving not even one

precious head

 

The children

and those yet unborn

from their mothers wombs

they were torn

Little ones

with sabers drawn

were run right threw

ripping the heart

from even the

strongest warrior

even ones

as strong as you

I,

 in tears

can not tell the rest

so I leave it

for

Old warrior's

who were the recorders of all

painted the story

well

yet sadly

upon the buffalo walls

 

Now,

 maybe just memories

written in dusty books

 

LOOK

 

White man

 

LOOK

 

at the Savagery

it took

 

The red man will rise again

In all his glory

 

They again stand telling

of all the Savagery

of all the greed

 

In dance and song

the story is still told

in your steps

I now follow

In your pain

I now join your tears

 

In our tears

 

do they now hear?

 

Understand?

 

The plight of the red man?

 

Mother moon weeps

leaving her tears

with-in the dew

 

always searching for the

proud people she once knew

This is spoken from the heart of a true indian spirit honey. I know how you feel of the spirit and what a tragedy it was what happened to our brothers of the buffalo. Beautiful poem baby, nicely done.
