Past Sorrows


Like arrows shot through the heart and never removed

The past may haunt you

Tweaked by memories the pain arises

Only to fall once again into the darkness of silent separation.


Nations struggle blood flows loved ones perish

All seems lost the past is always present in the prison of mind.

With no body tears may not flow

The past has nowhere to go remaining ever present.


Only the living can build the rainbow bridge

Uniting nations that once were linked only by flowing blood

Past sorrows must be healed now

Rainbow warriors must be found


Fallen ones in spirit alone have no voices to speak

You shed their tears without knowing

We may guide and hold you dear

Only in body can the rainbow warrior build the bridges

Of all colors

Of all nations


It is time to bury the arrows of past sorrows

I am Sitting Bull
