Walk on

Good morning Grandfather

I entered this life a ways back
And put skin on to walk two-legged
On this creation

And what a glorious time it was

It taught me about breath
And about sense and feeling
And caring through my heart

And I walked on
Around that red road
Looking and trying to understand more
About the Mystery
And the secrets she holds

And you spoke to me
Through the wind
And you sang to me
Through the birds

And you brought challenges forth
So that I might listen
To the message you bring me
More sincerely

And I kept walking down this road
And I came ’round the bend
At the middle of that curve in the road

And I began to find
A secret in the spirit of myself

And still I walked on

Sometimes blind and deaf
And sometimes with pain

But I fought with my fears
And I embraced my un-knowingness

And still I walked on

And as the door of the Great Spirit World came closer
My fear loomed up inside sometimes
But something called me forth

The morning star rose with each day.
And my prayer became
A centering

And still I walked on

Until I began to hear the song
Of the Mother
And her arms embraced me so
But instead of walking
She carried me
Right to the door
And as the door opened
I heard her song
And her song lifted me up

So I could soar
