Tu Voz

when i hear

your voice

i remember

all that i

have longed for,

all

that i’ve

never had…

all that i

have thrown away,

rejected,

mistook;

all the pent-up

daytime dreams

and nighttime

realms

in which

i romp;

what I aspire

is

unreachable here

it eludes

the girlish

fantasies

of

my

hopes;

it leaps

and pushes me

to know

that what

is above me

is not solid

but ephemeral

and

what is below me

represents

the gift

of flight.

Standing Rock

i

am not

afraid today;

i have seen

the force

of people

change a ragged

course,

a tainted destiny;

in action

and presence 

and words

we have not

stood by…

we have summoned

truth seekers

from every

human “tribe”

to bring

the powerful

medicine

that heals

and slays.

it cannot be

denied

it has brought victory

and will continue

to serve us

as we stand

united

on 

this 

rock.
