native pride


i am one of the fisrt true sons
i am one of the many who came before me
i am ne with this land..i belong to it
it does not belong to me
i have the pride of many elders
i respect the ways of old

i am one of the many true horseman and archers
I AM NATIVE AMERICAN
i am proud and i am free un like so many
before me, i have been robbed of land, and free will
but not myself but of my people before me
BUT YOU SHALL NEVER HEAR ME COMPLANE
but in stead i will stop and yell
NATIVE PRIDE
im soft spoken but wont be pushed
those before fought to hard for that
I AM NATIVE AMERICAN
my hair is long and black
my blood runs thick, , and proud
i belive in mother earth
and grandfather sky
the winds and rains talk to me
the animals are my brother/sisiters
I AM NATIVE AMERICAN
the smoke from the pipe and the heart of the drum
carry my message to the
great spirit...
the buffalo and wolfs and hawks, are my kin
and teach me well
I AM NATIVE AMERICAN
AND I HAVE
NATIVE PRIDE

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
