Poetry Making A Difference 
  Nothing will ever completely erase
Our heartache and the pain
  The tears we’ve shed
Over the torment, grief or “shame”
  Though none of it is our crime
As they made us to believe
  They took away our innocence
While they continued to deceive
  Now memories have their way
Of returning one by one
  About some horrible, hideous things
That should never have been done
  We’ve carried these awful acts
Right through to our present years
   No matter how hard we tried to forget
We’ve been living with all those fears
  But now, finally, sexual abuse is in the open
These acts that no one should ever condone
It’s not as frightening as it used to be
  Because now we’re no longer alone
These tormentors are getting justice
  They’re being made to see
They can’t keep doing to others
  As they did to you and me
Have faith! For now all will be well
  Now that our darkness has light
We’ll persevere until it shines
  Until we make it bright
Remember, we’re alone no longer
  We’ll learn to ease our torture and pain
Together we’ll be stronger
  We can be happy again
The SECRET has been a heavy weight
So now we’ll take a stand
  We survivors will stick together
Give each other a helping hand

Carol I. Crocker

The Modern Day Women's Lament (Poem)
© 2006, Rosalie Moscoe

I straddle the precipice between work and home;
The earth shifts beneath me and
Sometimes I think I’ll split in two.
Loving my work, loving my family,

Embracing work for the community -

It shouldn’t be a conflict, but it too often is.

I want so much to be there for others,
For those I love, for myself,
But my Commitments draw me in, taking on
A Life of Their Own;
And like an addict, I can’t stop
And go back for more.

My back may hurt, my heart may pound,
But still I surge forward,
Needing to accomplish, to succeed,
To make a contribution
That I know a woman is capable of making.

But there are days when all I want
Is to feel a cool breeze on my face,
Sunlight on my shoulders,
Or listen to peaceful or enchanting music -
Without Guilt.

For deep down I know that
A happy life is a balanced life
While, like a babe, I still search and long
For that seemingly elusive balance
That can bring with it
A feeling of satisfaction and peace.

So today, I turn my face toward the sunlight
With hope and love for the day,
And like a circus juggler, I surge forward
With joy, with a sense of fun in my heart,
With precision and excellence
And with compassion for myself and others.
When ultimately one ball is dropped,
And I gather strength to accept
The quietness and beauty of that moment
And other moments in my life.

DO YOU WANT REAL POWER?
Current mood: DOHIYI

WHAT KIND OF POWER DO YOU WANT?
DO YOU WANT WHAT THE WORLD HAS TO OFFER YOU?
WEALTH? POLITICAL POWER? SEXUAL POWER TO CONQUER MANY LOVERS? SPIRITUAL POWER TO SEND AND DESTROY YOUR ENEMIES?
MENTAL CONTROL TO GET PEOPLE TO DO WHATEVER YOU WANT?
MARTIAL ARTS POWER TO KILL PEOPLE AT WILL WITH YOUR HANDS AND/OR FEET? FIRE POWER TO WIPE OUT NATIONS OR SEND MICRO WAVES FROM A STAR WARS LIKE SATELLITE FROM OUTER SPACE AND COOK FOLKS AT WILL? WORD POWER TO GIVE GREAT SPEECHES AND
HAVE DEBATES THAT LEAVE YOUR OPPONENT SPEECHLESS?
POWER OF THE PRESS TO DESTROY CAREERS WITH THE WRITTEN WORD? MUSICAL/ ACTING/PAINTING/CREATIVE POWER TO DRAW LARGE CROWDS TO YOUR ARTISTRY? COOKING POWER TO CREATE DISHES THAT MAKE YOU A WORLD FAMOUS CHEF?
DEEP MENTAL MEDITATION POWER? ASTRAL PROJECTION? SHAPE SHIFTER? PSYCHIC POWERS?

WHAT POWER DO YOU WANT?

IS IT NOT TEMPTING TO WANT ALL THIS INSTEAD OF HELPING THE POOR OR LIVING SIMPLY ON YOU LAND?

I KNOW. I WAS A MUSICIAN WHO PLAYED AND SANG FOR OVER 10,000 PEOPLE AT ONE TIME. IT IS A RUSH TO DO SUCH A THING.
AND NOTHING IS WRONG WITH DOING THAT. EXCEPT, WHAT ARE YOUR MOTIVES FOR DOING IT?

IS IT TO SERVE THE PEOPLE AND THE CREATOR OF EVERYTHING?
OR IS TO TO GRATIFY OUR OWN LUSTS AS I DID AT ONE TIME?

YES, I WAS OUT OF CONTROL. I WENT THROUGH WOMEN LIKE THEY WERE CLOTHES WEARING OUT. AND CREATOR GOD FORBID THAT ANY CONFLICT SHOULD COME IN THE RELATIONSHIP. WHEN WE ARGUED, I WAS GONE.

BUT IF YOU ARE LIKE CHIEF ARVIL LOOKING HORSE (LAKOTA) WHO WON THE UN PEACE PRIZE FOR HUMANENESS OR MOTHER TEREASA OR JIMMY CARTER OR MAHATMA GHANDI OR TECUMSEH, AND A HOST OF OTHERS WHO ARE SERVANTS INSTEAD OF MANIPULATORS FOR MORE POWER, THEN YOU ARE FULFILLING YOUR PURPOSE ON THIS EARTH.

WHAT POWER DO YOU WANT? THE POWER OF A SERVANT OR THE POWER OF ONE THAT TAKES AND TAKES?
THINK ABOUT IT AND LET CREATOR GOD KNOW WHAT YOU DECIDE.
EH?

 Perfectowonderful question~ Dave...

I can answer that , maybe not completly~ but in my way.....and that is indeed POWER for me.....the POWER to say what I want...be who I want who is {Me}Peachy~....feel like I feel.....touch cause I can I have the ability still~ smell the aromas of life.... hear the sounds ~ block out what danger my ability to hear....because of the volume.....maybe? I do not appear to listen all the time....but I do~ I just may be listening in a different way ~ I may be listening with my eyes.....I have that ability also....I cannot always hear all that goes on....but my eyes can observe.....

the biggest POWER....I struggle the most with these days....Is Love~

I believe that only is because of my past and the lost faith perhaps I lost....because of what I allowed for myself...and how I allowed others to treat me~

That grows everday for me....I FEEL IT TASTE IT HEAR IT AND SEE IT....

that my new friend is the POWER I want....because anything else...will simply fall in place for me~....in this life GOD has planned for me...and it is~

Peachy~

[But the Creator God asks us to give the sacrifice of giving up our total personal wishes in exchange for a greater good of us all.
For example: Some people get upset when there is no healing of a person that they prayed for.
It's kinda sad that people will completely lose their belief system just because Creator/ God says "no" to their request in prayer. Like they have a better view of the situation than Creator/ God does. Once a Lakota Spiritual Elder was asked by a newspaper reporter how a merciful Creator/ God could have allowed all of the home that had been to be destroyed in a recent flood and all those people to die in that flood. The reporter said, "If there is a merciful God, how can He let this happen?"
The Elder replied, "Sometimes Creator requires us to use the wisdom that He has given us. He taught my people to build their homes on the high ground and no so close to the rivers."
This may have sounded curt and unfeeling. But what the elder was saying is don't blame Creator/ God for your mistakes and don't always expect Him to save you from them.

If they had not destroyed the natural barriers to the surges of hurricanes, if they had not polluted the Earth so that the temperature rose to heat the ocean surface into a perfect breeding ground for killer hurricanes, and if people had built in safer places, not so many lives would have been lost in the Katrina hurricane. But people still want to ask, if there is a Creator/ God, why didn't He save the people? I say don't blame Creator/ God for our own selfish mistakes. Yes, innocent people suffer along with the bad. And some of the bad {{like those who did little to nothing to help the poor African Americans and did nothing to help the Native Americans in that area}} get away without a scratch seemingly on them. But we all know that there will come a day for them to give an account.

So, it all boils down to the path that we walk. Do we walk the path of me first? Or do we walk the path of a servant and put the Creator God first and those suffering around us first.
Because a true servant sometimes has to forget their needs and give into what the needs of other really needy people have or what Creator God wants us to do.
You know Jonah hated the Nineveh people with good reason. They had killed his people and possibly family members of his. But he was told to go and help them. What if you were told to go and help the people of Iraq, or Iran or North Korea or China.
Or worse yet what if you were a Jew who was sent to help the people of Nazi Germany.
That is the kind of self sacrifice that is required of a servant of the Creator/ God.
As a youth, (even though I am half white) I hated whites for what they had done to my people.
But Creator God required me to work in a hospital for a while where the vast majority of my patients were white. I learned patience and humility doing that, but no self control very well.
But I had to put aside what I felt and wanted to do what Creator God wanted me to do. Eh?
I am still learning self control, especially when a developer who is desecrating our graves gets in my face.
But I am still learning and will continue to learn until I walk the Spirit Path. Eh?
Wado,
David
