The Way Called Beautiful
THE WAY CALLED BEAUTIFUL
“They came from many directions….
Legions upon legions of them….
They danced, they sang, they fought….
They finally left in total rejection….
She stood silently reiterating….
Her many facades she chose to act…..
It was many years later when age had come
To claim the beauty from her life….
Again she heard them approaching from
Far, far away in the distance…..
Yes, they stopped and stood
Before the entrance of her sacred lodge….
How long they remained standing this way
No one will ever know
It was another day she heard
The footsteps coming
Nearer and nearer towards her….
Yes, they walked right over her,
And they kept on walking away from her…..
In this life our ancestors walked
Also in that sacred manner….
They considered Mother, Our beautiful
Earth not as a means to lay abuse but…
as a means to love and understand life.
Your Rainbow ones up there blend
The Way called Beautiful”
