~I Am A Native American~






~I am a Native American~
I am a Native American with hopes, fears, and dreams.
I wonder what my future will bring?
I know what I want it to be.
I pretend to watch the sunset on a rocky mountain edge.
I want to live among my ancestors and be one with them again.
I am a Native American with hopes, fears, and dreams.
I remember the stories of how I came to be.
I worry that when I am gone no one will remember me.
I ignore the ignorance of others who keep my spirit from being free.
I feel my ancestors blood running in me.
I say to others keep alive your history.
I am a Native American with hopes, fears, and dreams.
I dream of life among the plains.
I see how ignorance bound us like chains.
I fear my history will fade away.
I try to remember how my ancestors would pray.
I hope I am bringing them honor each day.
I am a Native American with hopes, fears, and dreams.
I am She Who Wanders

I was asked of I would share some of my Poetry. So I will take the time to share some of them here with you. I only ask that they remain here and not passed around without my permission. I've written poetry since I was lil and I enjoy sharing them with others when I can. My poems deal with what I was going through as a child growing up. They have a wide range of emotions from death, abuse, happiness, to plain silliness. I just want to letcha know ahead of time, some of what I share may make ya uncomfortable. I don't do this to upset anyone, I do this to enlighten ya and to share what I've endured. My poetry is a huge part of who I am as is my artwork. I would hope ya find them inspiring.
~Thanks Poetic Dreams~
