WE ARE LEARNING!
Questions without answers are whispered on the winds,
prayers lifted on the smoke wait for Creator’s blessings.
Mother Earth is spinning
everything is shifting
time is drawing to a close
the Fifth World is dawning,
tears for all are flowing.
Each day brings a worry,
are the children ready,
do they remember what the stories had to tell them,
they have now been spread far and wide.
Look around and know
now is the time to gather together,
we must stand as one people,
there is within this story another one to tell.
Do I walk this path alone
or are you still upon it with me;
did you forget the word you gave
is your heart still true?
There is so much that needs be done
and all of us must do it,
we cannot wait for someone else
but proudly stand and do it.
The tribes are in trouble
but the Elders are awakened,
teachers stir and stretch,
they are learning they can do this.
All things here changed,
we need no one to tell us,
it is to each other we must look:
we cannot depend on the others.
And now I say to you – the riddle is yours to answer,
if it is meant for you,
please tell me what my heart yearns for:
I need to hear it!
