~ I Am ~

I am...
you me and we
All a part of The ONE
I am woman ,mother , grandmother,
giver of heart and love.
I am your daughter, sister , aunt , cousin,
I am by birth and heart Cherokee
I am proud , yet I am humble

To you...
I will extend my hand should you stumble
Does not matter the color of your skin
if we all take the time to look within
In me you will find a true sister and a friend.
I have been called by many names.
Discrimination calls me Indian!
The Creator above calls me His child
I am Native American and I have walked upon
this earth many times before discrimination was born.
Time after time , my roots were shattered and torn.
But my heritage stands proud !
The legends and lore speak loud.

Again and again we are reborn.
I am, flesh and blood, yet I am the Spirit of yesterday
Striving towards a better tomorrow ,
as I push discrimination out of my way.
I am.. a part of the past ,the present, and the future.
I am one...yet I am many
Come take my hand and walk with me across the land
and across the sea.
Live in peace and harmony as it is meant to be.
You and I are a part of the...
I Am
