I Cry For You, Grandmother

I Cry For You, Grandmother



I cry for you, my Grandmother.
I cry for your pain, I cry for your shame
that you so unjustly did bore.
It is not your's to carry anymore.

You came from a noble birthright.
To me you were a brightly shining light.
I'm proud of our family tree,
I am so proud to be part Cherokee!

I cry cause you were treated badly,
you could not hold your head up proudly.
I give you the honor that is due you,
the honor that you sadly never, knew.

I am proud to be your Granddaughter.
I cry for our people that were slaughtered.
I hold my head up high for all of you.
For out of you, I and many others grew.

Dear Jan.,
Oh my goodness this is simply just an awesome and blessed heartfelt write.
I had to read this several times just to get a feeling what you shared in your writing on this one my friend.
Just nothing but a heartfelt loving write about a Grandmother.
This is an awesome write dear Jan.

Jan,
This is a Wonderful tribute to your Beautiful Grandmother who went through so much because of her heritage. It is so sad though the way they were treated. Thank God you can be proud of your heritage now and not have to suffer like she did. I know she is smiling down on you from Heaven above.

God Bless You Love Eva

Thank you both. Dear B.J. and Dear Eva,
yes I am proud of my Native American heritage.
I just wish that my grandmother could have been.
She suffered many injustices, it makes me sad, just
thinking about what she went through. She was afraid
to even admit to her heritage, but that was a
different time and a different day.

Sadly many people are still mistreated even today.

JAN, HOW SAD FOR YOUR GRANDMOTHER AND THE MANY OTHER AMERICAN NATIVE TRIBES. THE WHITE MAN LOST MUCH CULTURE BY DESTROYING TRIBES OF PEOPLE WHO COULD HAVE TAUGHT SO MUCH TO THE WHITE MAN'S LIFE IN AMERICA. BUT AS USUAL, GREED TOOK OVER, THEY SLAUGHTERED AND BURN THIER HISTORY AND WAYS OF LIFE. LOOKING BACK OVER HISTORY, FROM THE BEGINNING OF TIME MAN HAS SLAUGHTERED EACH OTHER FOR ONE REASON OR ANOTHER. WE NOW SEE SO MUCH HATE AND RACISM THAT WE WILL NEVER SEE OR HEAR THE END OF ALL THE INJUSTICES. AND WHAT HAS IT ALL GAINED BUT SORROW AND PAIN. GREAT TRIBUTE TO YOUR GRANDMOTHER JAN, WONDERFUL POEM. GOD BLESS YOU, LOVE BRENDA
