“In the very earliest time,  when both people and animals lived on earth, a person could become an animal if he wanted to, and an animal could become a human being. Sometimes they were people and sometimes animals and there was no difference. All spoke the same language. That was the time when words were like magic. The human mind had mysterious powers. A word spoken by chance might have strange consequences. It would suddenly come alive and what people wanted to happen could happen— all you had to do was say it. Nobody can explain this: That’s the way it was.” Nalungiaq

Silence.

I am adopted.

I am abused.

I am an orphan.

Deep sadness

like a stifled cry from the emotions that overwhelm.

Living in exile at home

An impossible escape

A folding on myself.

My pain

become remorse

a long punishment

which bends my back.

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, “My son, the battle is between 2 “wolves” inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.” The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?” The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

I think over again my small adventures, my fears / These small ones that seemed so big / For all the vital things I had to get and to reach / And yet there is only one great thing / The only thing / To live to see the great day that dawns / And the light that fills the world. (Inuit Prayer)
