  • Sometimes it is not so good to dream

    I don't know who opened the door but everyone keeps telling me
    that there is no way to close it now. It's my journey they say
    and there is no going back. A man stands before me and he asks
    "are you an Indian"? I look at the ground and I reach in my pocket.
    I find a small piece of broken pottery among my spare change.
    I tell him I don't think so and I give him this shard with a fraction of myself carved into it. This is all I got. This is all they gave me 1/16.

    Thats a really good poem, very deep, thank you for sharing it
    "As your children want to become doctors and lawyers, they may find it difficult. They may hear 'well, your parents were in a terrorist group/ We tell you that now, so you understand it. Tell your children to tell their children this [Wounded Knee 1973] was a very proud moment. Wear that history like a badge of honor. We will never, ever say we were sorry we did it." Dennis Banks, AIM

    "Everything that has ever happened to us is there to make us stronger." John Trudell


    You gotta say it right "Pahk tha cah in Havid yahd! "

        dreaming cont'd

        The man hands me a card that says rejected,stamped in big black letters. I wonder what it is I have been rejected from. I keep walking. I hold my child's hand and when
        I look at his face I see his brown eyes and brown hair and I know that whatever anyone may say he is whole and perfect.

            Miss C Abatog,
            I think you could probably write something better.
            It is a learned skill. If you really desire to write
            you just need some time,inspiration and a little direction.

            happy writing

              "I HEREBY CHALLENGE THE ELDERS" email
              by nykari
              My friend sent me this email wondering if I had seen it. (which I hadn't) Thought I would let you folks here know about it. With my luck it is probably old news, but such is my luck..haha.

              So what is your opinion?

              To Much Drinkin
              by Lakota Wiyan
              I wanted to write this here, BEFORE I have to write it in the Memorials. I want to tell about my Uncle V., who can't stop drinking.
              When I was little, he was the best Uncle in the world, and as I grew up, he was always there for me, proud of me no matter what I did. I knew I was his favorite,...

              Alpha Lipoic Acid Arsenic toxicity protection and more
              by muskrat_skull
              I've been taking Alpha Lipoic Acid, which I buy at Wally world for 7.98, for over a year now with great results. When I saw what happened with the river, I was horrified for everyone who lives around these water systems. We are already being poisoned through the air, the mercury in fish, and through...

              Bad Knee(s)
              by alamosaurus
              I have occasional problems with both knees. Last Saturday, I
              went on a 4-mile hike in the local mountains (around L.A.). This
              time it was the turn of my RIGHT knee to act up. (Last time it
              was the left.) It became very stiff and painful to bend. I had
              trouble getting...

              Abuse.... :-(
              by NDNKIDZ
              A few folks here know about the abuse i suffered as a child. So I thought the first place to start is to get it out and have a place to discuss all types of abuse with other folks. I know it is a very difficult thing to talk about.. and i know i may not receive many posts to this thread and i...
