 A song lives from long ago, a story told for those yet unborn
    lifting in the morning mist, in the golden rays the world adorned
    Like a prayer so heart felt, by grandchildren now forlorn.
 
    Lilting softly upon a sigh, water washed and smoke surrounds
    Pain caught for all time, love of Mother Earth abounds
    Tells of a People proud and free, held captured within sounds.
 
    Written down upon the page, marks and scratches that we read
    black and white the letters bold, hold forever a bitter creed
    all was lost or so it seemed, broken hearts today still bleed.
 
    Within the song there is a message, for the children a true blessing.
    wisdom held for many ages, passed along with a testing
    never sell what is not yours, leave alone that which is resting.
 
    Do not kill with abandon, for fear you kill your own tomorrow
    never take more than you need, or you cause your grandchildren sorrow
    with what you have be satisfied, from another never borrow.
 
    Remember always who you are, and give thanks with all your heart
    protect your Mother Earth and all her children, raise your hand do your part
    do not lie or cheat, ask forgiveness for lives you take, simple prayer is a start.
 
    Keep the connection to your center, know your blood and your reasons
    stay true to your promise, do not get lost beneath their changing legions 
    hold fast to your own path, know your way and your seasons.
 
    Teach our young to fight on, hold our visions in their spirits
    with blood we paid so many years, to a Sacred place draw them near it
    ancestors sing within our being, pounding drums thunder, can you hear it?
 
    Lessons taught so long ago, hold a purpose for what is to come
    ice, fire, wind, and water, lightning strikes and ash is the sum
    what once was, will be again, promise held out like a plum.
 
    We will not forget, with every heart beat we grow stronger and our voices louder
    within our hands lies the answer, clear away the nonsense and stand prouder
    what they forced us to learn, has only made our cause stouter.
 
    Genocide they still practice, yelling their hatred like frightened children caught stealing
    their own lies they have hidden, the weight of blood guilt they are feeling
    peeling away at the truth, the light of day makes them tremble before our healing.
 
    Yes, it is true, a song lives from long ago, a story told for those yet unborn tomorrows
    it was for us that hidden message, that prayer held in the darkness borrowed
    upon the earth a new sun rises, molten gold that unveils to all the truth of our sorrows.
 
    Sing it now with loving pride, lift your voices high and wide
    tell the whole world we are still here, in the shadows we no longer hide
    not ghost People anymore, with confidence across our homelands we now stride.

"for the children a true blessing"

I wish more people knew that. I've been going around and around with a woman on another forum about abortion. Too many people don't see the value in life.

Sad that, does she not know how precious is life?

The same woman, when I stated that I'm not in favor of abortion, stated that didn't I know that most people view sex as merely recreational - and I must be stupid if I think it's for procreation....

Guess I'm stupid.

Vgilv, do not feel alone, I think same as you, so sad so many now think so "casualy" about life.

Life is special and valuable.  The older I get, the more I realize it.  The wonder of whatever this is that we're a part of is so vast.  There's more to it than we know.

Albert Einstein said that nothing's ordinary, that everything is a miracle.  It's true.
