The Essence Of Chief Powhatan
by Amber "V" Moonstone 6/6/08
Such a powerful Chief,
You ruled with wisdom
You ruled with adoration,
You ruled with magnificence.
Standing on your burial mound,
My mind wandered to your reign.
It was over 400 years ago,
but still in the hearts of your people.
You were loved by the masses,
hated by your enemies,
but respected by all living creatures,
even the force of nature.
You taught your people,
to be a proud nation,
a fighting nation,
and surviving nation.
The Pamunkey Indian tribe,
is a proud nation of people,
they have been on their land,
since the beginning of mankind.
One of the oldest surviving tribes,
and it was due to your influence.
There is no one living today,
that does not know your name.
You had a beauty of a princess,
Pochahontas, she represented peace,
harmony, and love.
She always chose those qualities.
You, Chief Powhatan,
have touched my soul
I will not ever forget your spirit,
nor will I falter from my mission.
I will tell the story of your forgotten people
I will spread peace, love, and light,
I will tell of Karena's healing powers,
I will show the world to love again.
It was your message,
on that hot June afternoon in 2008,
while I stood on your burial mound,
asking for your guidance and wisdom;
Your spirit came to me,
and said, go my child,
you must conclude your journey,
You must tell our story!
So now, I continue to search,
for facts and answers,
I ask Brother Wind, Father Sky,
and Mother Earth for protection and guidance!
authors notes: It was on, June 5, 2008, that I had this remarkable experience. I connected with Powhatan's spirit and vowed to tell the story of his people, the real story.
May peace, love, and light, follow you all the days of the rest of your life,
