    The Warrior in Me

    O' grandfathers how grateful am I for this heart beating in me circulating your gift of life.
    O' my ancestors of centuries past.
    Fearless sailors making the vast Pacific give up her secret shores.
    Warrior adventurers all.
    You moved steadily across the ocean blue.
    Warrior discoverers kneel on the glistening sand.

    O' grandfathers how I miss you.
    Be proud of the warrior I've become.
    Know I teach in earnest those young one's willing to learn.
    Passing down what lessons you gave.
    To listen.
    To love.
    To enjoy all that surrounds me.

    O' my beautiful ancestors hold me in your loving arms.
    Prevent the harm this world brings.

    Remember you in song.
    Honor you with dance.
    O' grandfathers hear our clear voices sing.
    Of the warrior in me.

    Be happy grandfathers as we care for your lands.
    Building, growing,harvesting and expanding the life your gift redeems.
    Strengthening my family.
    Allowing us to be.
    Like the warrior in you.
    So all shall see the gift of the warrior in me...........

    I'm glad you get my work and can take some enjoyment from it.....

    Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

    Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
