Oh Great Spirit, whose voice I hear in the wind
Hear me, for I am young, small and weak
I need your strength and wisdom
I seek strength, oh Great One,
not to be superior to my brothers,
but to conquer my greatest enemy, myself
I seek wisdom, the lessons you have
hidden in every leak and rock,
so that I may learn and carry those messages
of life and hope to my people
May my hands always respect
the many beautiful things you have made,
my ears be sharp to hear your voice.
May I always walk in your beauty
and let my eyes ever behold
the red & purple sunsets
So when life fades, like the setting sun,
my spirit will come to you without shame.
I have spoken.
