SMOKE ON THE WIND

FREEDOM
by Dancing Feather

 

How can one person say to another
How they are to pray?

 

I believe in the Great Spirit
And I seek only to do His good.

 

I stand on mother earth, raise my arms over my head.
Praying in all directions, north, east, south and west,
before I put my arms down to rest.

 

This is my church. I saw some new buds and sprouts of life today
And was given a new feather to hold when I pray.

 

I will continue to give to all of God’s creatures
And to my fellow man.

 

I’m Indian.

 

I love you and hope you can now look at me
And start to understand
We are all of the same Father
And of the same land.

 

I will pray for you
And you pray for me.

 

I will see you in paradise.
Just you wait and see.
