Reservation Drums Reservation Shame

Genocide has happened here in America.

Everything Hurts & I'm Dying


There used to be the Buffalo on  high grassy plains, storming across the prairie like torrential rains
There used to be the beaver, the wolf and bear
Now there are few, now They are rare
There used to be drums, There used to be dance, there used to be a people that had a fighting chance

Now there is nothing left for them
Their tribes have been raped
A lost lost people with no hope or pity, no goodness sake

How would We feel with our souls, our homes cast into flames?
After what I saw today, I must cry



They are a forgotten people, taken for granted and spurned
They watched as their heritage was spit on and burned

A newly discovered country the scholars do cheer
What about the people that were already here?


What I saw today made me feel guilty, who is to blame?

The people in charge of so much have no clue what is really needed, what is wanted (reasonably, we all want to be ‘Rock stars’ or so Nickleback says), and where money really needs to go…and if they are Christian, the result of their actions, good or bad, seen, don’t know…
I guess for me it just feels so hopeless. I try not to get mired down in it, but…

There is that moment when light turns into night and night turns into day when there is exquisite beauty everywhere on the earth. Thank you God/Goddess for those precious moments where we are blessed with pure beauty everywhere in the world; like it was meant to be.
