“Cheryl’s Students”

Much thanks to Roxie for her very generous gift of art supplies to Cheryl Locke’s elementary class on the Pine Ridge Reservation.  My poem, as promised, on topic of Roxie’s choice.

Visit Roxie’s blogcasa for many things writing/publishing related–with good humor too. Sorry, not the Good Humor  Ice Cream Bars–yet. Though she may figure out how to link us up with those too soon enough!  http://roxieh.wordpress.com/

 

 

“Cheryl’s Students”

 

we are the pasts unintended

future hopes

unexpectedly present

vitality

over years courses

we are the others

children born of desire

enduring

in spite of all

invaded isolated alienated

yet

uncrushed

scarred, scraped, scoured

singing soaring smiling

still

unvanished

persistent we learn enemy ways

thriving determined

hearing old ones wind whispering

We are Lakota!
