For Wounded Knee

Post by norman » Sat Jul 19, 2014 1:45 pm

As We pray
For Wounded Knee
It's our for-fathers
We wish to see

To hear their wisdom
And hear of their past
To set their souls free
Some people will never grasp

To hear of that courage
As they stood their ground
Just patiently waiting
Not making a sound

Our hearts bleed
For those in our past
As we all pray that
Their memories will last

Many prayers for all
Those souls at Wounded Knee
They gave up their lives
Trying to stay free

So as we pray
For those gone on before
When it come to slaughters
Let's pray there are no more

TO SOME WE SEEM LIKE A FOOL
BUT OUR WORDS OF POETRY
IS JUST OUR EXPESSION TOOL
