What is, What was

Updated on August 12, 2011

in the darkness i cry my tears of pain and no one hears or sees.the silence of the night is frightening and seems never ending. into the night the journey begins. it is such a long dark road. when will the foolishness end. the darkness calls my name, screams the pain of the day. there is no humanity there is just pain and suffering. the hawk flies over and calls my name, beckens me to follow. brother coyote is laughing, ever the jokester, he knows but does not tell. he leads me to the waters edge, but i do not see. the forest is full of wagging tongues, but i don't understand their language, i run and run trying to escape, but their is no escape. i cry and no one hears, the thunder of the buffalo are coming thousands running, so close, and then are gone, where did they go.  i search and search and can find no answer, the puzzle continues. one by one, each disappear, forever, and no one notices. and i ask why?

      to acknowledge the death and destruction of our sentient beings, to me, indicates that they did not die in vain, that there are humans who do truly care and take action to preserve our wildlife and domestic animals. right now the genocide of our American Mustangs and burros continues, as so many more species. we should not turn a blind eye to what happens everyday....and yes, there are so many good people in the world that truly are humanitarians, for which I am in deep gratitude. i wish i could do more...for now, i will give a voice to the voiceless.

      Because we are a selfish, immature and ignorant race, as a whole...and it is a shame. I don't like to feel this way or acknowledge this as true but, all one has to do is look around at the destruction, heartlessness, carelessness and feeling of superiority which is so deep seated in so many of 'us.' It's a shame. There is a beautiful side, too but, sometimes, it's hard to see. Thank you for communicating something we all need to consider and work towards healing.
