Donate to Prayer)4(Wounded Knee:


It took a trillion trials to find the children of smiles and climb that feelin uphill, to build some strong bridges for miles..
Im kinda crooked from all the gratitude, asking you, "when did you put your foot in that book of freedom, good afternoon?"

I'm hanging out with a Mayan scientist on Turtle Island,
riding the lighting, like I was a titan fighting a lion,
tryin to tighten the screw the spiral just deepens and widens
seeing thru multidimensional lenses, praying in silence
keep giving thanks to the water, honoring mothers and fathers
grandmothers, grandpas and daughters, the sun, the moon and the alter,
higher and higher we go, it keeps us connected, inspired,
so we can cut all wires, of the fence, and dance w jaguars
holding the hands of empires, with children who know to build,
with children who know when to dance, eat, listen and sit still.
I'm learning the master teacher's the fire so look into it,
give it what you don't need and be friends with it, you can enter it,
send it your messages, center yourself, and see the animals,
ask for their guidance and they'll guide, ask for a minus and it might
bring a bring a couple clowns into your life,
flipping everything upside down, til the frown turns to a smiley face--
I'm wide awake, with a diet of paying attention constantly
to all of my surrounding and praying for clean air
food water and those types of things, for everyone, and everything,

To all of my relations, Aho to all my family.

started with the snake of underworld, turned to alligator,
alligator turned to eagle, eagle took the elevator,
up to heaven, up to heaven, that's where are prayers go,
look into the sun, I swear to god you'll see a rainbow,
scarecrows hang desolate in open fields of pestilence,
the ocean feels the pressure every time we reach the precipice
and jump to make a splash…..I ask,
is it about cash?, or is it about the community?,
Well I took a trip to Wounded Knee to prove to me,
that where I'm really needed is usually right where Im at,
and that's nothing knew to me, my responsibility is duty free,
just exude beauty and be true to who I truly see,
preview the movies before acting like someone they try to choose me to be
I used to be a...I used to be a punk
I used to be a hippy I used to be a gypsy, I use to be a monk .
I guess the bottom line is that I used to think I was on top
of what I thought was the way, until I found out I was that rock I was on
felt the lava it was hot, got the bucket and the mop
started feelin sorta dizzy, like the city was the problem...
tryed to call the cops but uh---what they gonna do?,
authorities the friction in the plot, the poison in the soup...
the noises overgrew the silent treatment of a sovereign nation,
bridges that were built now being crossed, without religious connotations...
WIth the patience of a turtle....we can learn to see the constellation in every single circle

With every cell of every being, we pray that every living being has everything it ever needs for 7 generations free.

It took a trillion trials to find the children of smiles and climb that feelin uphill, to build some strong bridges for miles..
Im kinda crooked from all the gratitude, asking you, "when did you put your foot in that book of freedom, good afternoon?"

4 directions, 4 nations, each direction is infinite, need protection, not a problem, nestle underneath the wing tip…..

5, 6, 7, 8 --Who can fly to heavens gates…

meditate, levitate….

Excuse me for being cryptic let me spell it out in laymen's terms,
mother nature's vision is lining up when we pray with her...
our spirit is experience blanketed with ancient flames that burn
the sacred herbs are magnets, like solar flares when we pray with birds
Their favorite word... Love, cuz soon there'll only be one, language
some will seek shelter on mountains, others will choose to board the spaceship,
where it takes em I don't know, but I know I'm a stay here
with my family, everything's my family, everything's my mirror,
consciousness called evolution, it never lets us down,
we're looking up from here, b/c the sky above us is what keeps us grounded…..
so send a prayer as a solution to anyone or anything….
to all of my relations, aho to all my family.

clean water, food, air for all the family/families

It's that simple act of kindness via mindfulness
Shouts out to the people of wounded knee, crompound and the bee hive, thank you for the reminders.
