    It's a cry that echos through the years
    The pain etched on each generation
    I've been told it's history, that I am
    A hundred and fifty years too late
    To try and feel some type of way
    But the hole in my heart
    wont seal up
    It hurts to know
    that I've lost so
    much of My family
    My culture
    My language
    All because someone wanted gold
    All because they needed land
    And plots to call their own
    Now they tell me
    its okay For a school
    to have the mascot
    Dress up in the same clothes
    as my Teton ancestors
    They show the games on the tv
    There are crowds of headresses
    And dozens of faces cover in paint
    Their "war cries" echo through the stadium
    Where they pass a ball from one end to the other
    And during half time
    you can watch the redman
    Run and hop and holler
    Impersonating a warrior in his prime
    Its sad that these people
    see no wrong in these acts
    "Its a tradition!" they claim
    "Something thats been done for ages"
    Cue the bitter laughter
    Its a point thats proven true
    Just grab an American history book
    And flip to the beginning
    There will be hundreds of tales
    About the fight against these brown native men
    And even after the war was won
    They continue to earse the brown from his skin
    They locked the people on strips of land
    And took the children to boarding schools
    Where they where told
    How to dress
    How to speak
    And even how to live
    They took their names
    They took their homes
    They even took their words
    And all the while the Caucasian man was chanting
    "Kill the indian, save the man"

    Hypnotic
    He has always had this way of throwing out words like a life vest
    To any of those poor souls who are drowning in the sea
    When he has you reeled in, he will offer you his hand
    Before pulling you on board where you glaze into his sea shade eyes
    You'll find yourself drowning in another sea of blue green
    And ultimately willing to do his every whim, and command
    All without a second thought or even any hesitation
    Even if it means jumping back into the same ocean
    He had only seconds ago rescued you from
    And all just for his own amusement
    And even when his ship has sail beyond the horizon
    You will find your mind still occupied with blue-green eyes

    But once you realize
    That the hole you
    Have been sitting in
    Is nothing but a circle
    You drew around yourself
    With a chalk crayon
    Made of your own insecurities
    And all you need to do
    Is swipe your hand across
    That line, you will finally
    Understand it never mattered
    What the world will see
    But all in what you think
    You need to be
    And the simple truth was
    That you had the power
    All along to set yourself free

    Sylvia Plath once wrote of a
    friend, 'She is something vital.'
    I write today to inform you of
    the same about yourself. You
    possess life-giving properties
    no less powerful than those of
    the sun. Your very birth was
    the result of a benevolent,
    ancient conspiracy of the
    universe. You are the enduring
    debris of expired stars, the
    body that you dwell in houses a
    portion of the energy the
    celestial ancestors gave to the
    universe as light and life. This is
    your inheritance: a corporal
    homestead in deep space from
    which you can (and must)
    embrace and endure the signs
    of life.
    Alana Massey

    Step away from the screen.
    Don’t compare yourself to them
    — it isn’t fair to measure how you feel against what others
    choose to show you about their lives. Your work has value. Your
    ideas only seem obvious to you. Creativity IS perspective—how
    you see the world is unique to you. No, it won’t connect with
    everyone, but it will resonate with someone if you allow it to.
    What if, instead of believing you aren’t enough, you just decided
    you were? Maybe you could be great. Maybe you already are
    (you probably are). The world is full enough of people who will
    try to shrink you. Why be one of them? You can be your own
    worst critic…or your biggest ally. Think about it. Feel that
    flicker of light? That's possibility. Maybe you are great.
    Yeah, you are. Hold that thought. Store it somewhere
    you can return to.
    Visit often.

    If you listen
    Hard enough
    You can hear
    The thunderstorm
    Raging beneath my
    Soft flesh
    It crackles to life
    Every single time
    Your hand brushes
    Against mine

    It would be a dream come
    To reality
    To find myself lost with you in
    Another vicinity
    Lets pack our bags, we just need
    The essentials
    And take the first flight as far away
    As possible
    Because there is nothing left to hold
    Us back
    We could learn how to climb the
    Towering trees
    That grow upon the tallest peaks and
    Right afterwards
    We could dive into the deepest depths of
    The Oceans
    Explore caves and swim to the edge of
    The Sea
    The Sun will wave hello when we emerge from
    The deep
    And as we watch the moon rise, much like that
    First time
    We will remeber the long journey our feet
    Has carried
    Us, from the thin air to the thick sea, and evey
    In between
    And maybe that will be the moment we
    Finally understand
    What it means to be in love all over
    The Earth

    "...Left your head up,
    See the field beyond the trees,
    This battle is not yet over,
    The war still rages on ahead,
    So pick up your sword,
    And rise up to the challenge,
    There is a bloodbath awaiting,
    And its your calling to be there,
    It will be a tough and hard battle,
    But one that can be won,
    Take my hand, I will pull you up,
    Stand with me as my brother in arms,
    Together we will slay the monsters,
    That have dared invade our lands,
    We will show the world our victories,
    And all who wronged us shall tremble with fear..."

    Confused
    The evidence was in the way your nose would
    Crinkle
    And how the right side of your
    Smile
    Would always rise a bit higher
    You
    Would giggle but I knew that
    My
    Jokes aren't something you always
    Understand
    But to be honest I don't think I
    Always
    Do either, but I love hearing you
    Laugh

    I never really did like nail salonsOr gold and diamond studded jewleryIt reminds me of my fatherWho has always thoughtThat the best way he could show loveWas in the numbers stamped on a price tagThe materal wolrd filled with materialistic peopleTrying to buy what can not be boughtJust give me something thatYou haven't thought to give,Lets make memoriesAnd collect them like currency in a jarThats on top of the fridgeAnd every year we can cash them inAnd see all the things we have gottenWithout ever wasting a penny on themBecause if there's one thing that is priceless It is the love that is given not bought

    The meaning of life
    The purpose of existence
    Looking up at blue vastness
    Maybe I'll find a few answers
    Or a few more wistful wishes
    Getting high like the clouds
    Lungs puffing it out
    The trains going astry
    A break malfunction
    But who needs to stop
    When we're headingTo the same destination
    The meaning of life
    Is seaching for the
    Purpose of existence
    But existence becomes meaninglessWhen you're living to die
    And dying to live

    The light can't make up its mind
    On either to be a light or just let it be dark
    It flickers from the ceiling of her closet that has no door
    It's a closet full of all kinds of things
    That she has collected over the years
    Theres a brown box full of faded pictures
    Another full of rusty old toys
    There's a pile of dusty, torn stuff animals laying in the corner
    Who have retired from keeping
    All the monsters and her demons at bay
    On the shoe rack is her skates she's barley ever worn
    Because she could never figure out how to go forward Without her always falling down
    Underneath her battered shoes are all her unfinished dairies And letters she never sent
    Against the far wall beneath the still hangs the blood red prom dress
    That never got the chance to sweeped across dance floors
    Stacked against all four walls
    Reaching up from the floor to the roof
    Are all the books that ever made her cry or laugh Or really felt anytype of anything
    The brown carpet is stained
    And there's a corner that was never stapled down
    And what lays underneath
    Is a folder full of secrets the world must never know
    Its a closet full of new and old things
    Memories of times that are either best left forgotten
    Or never to forget
    Its a closet
    But its full of
    Life
