DO YOU BELIEVE?
Tear washed face lifted to the skies, heart is broken with the trying, earth magic is fast fading, and the old ones still are crying.
Take, take, and take some more, who cares about tomorrow, live for today in abandon, waste it all leave nothing for the children.
Evil stalks with smiling slyness, hiding behind false shyness, speaking words that sound so sweet, while sprinkling poison on the meats.
All you see, and hear are lies fed to you with silver spoon, the very gifts of Creator used for evil to deceive you, medicines cursed with madness.
Whispered hope lifts your spirits, behind your back they are killing, with the yellow metal they make promise, but the dreams are all hollow.
Play now and pay tomorrow, buy more lands while they are fallow, prices dropped to lead you on, soon your soul belongs to them.
Homeless, hungry, in deep sorrow, all are hidden far away; deny it all in your pretending; they are only lives you are ending.
Mother Earth is in distress, Father Sky will give no breath, all the waters have receded, fires burning are unheeded, close your eyes you’re only dreaming.
All are happy and well fed, all are housed in middle class, children taught with loving kindness, there are no abuses to be found.
There are no crimes, no rapes or murders, not one child is ever missing, there are no troubles in this land, you my friend are mistaken.
No genocide of any People, no slavery or unfairness, our government works for the best, no enemy in our nests.
There are no blind, sick, or hurting, no one dies from neglect, no Elder left alone and frightened, no denying medical treatment to a child.
We move on day by day, never seeing until too late, the spirits speak and no one listens, the Circle closes it is turning, Creator calls out to the children.
Help each other while you can, each new day another chance, stop living in your closed up world, lift your hand to help your brothers.
Every human has a reason, just as Mother changes seasons, find that deep inside you, open your heart and offer prayers.
Speak to others of the truth, those who know are called as teachers, reach out and shake loose the cocoon they are wrapped safely in.
Stop waiting for someone to do, what Creator calls to you, we are all in this together, there is not one who is better, it is your duty now get to it!
