soul lost
spirit found
all at the cost of my being
 bound by presentation 
ideas of equality 
handed to me on a silver platter 
tempting
soul lost
 spirit found
 all for the healing of my being
 free to navigate the trails of my history 
hope for justice 
embedded in my heart
light the wick 
searching
soul lost
 spirit found
 all for the truth of my being 
silenced by performers
 lifted by the crowd
 take a bow
take a stand
clap
soul lost spirit found all for the love in my being 
birds of a flock always stick together 
survival of the fittest 
let us fly
-Lehna Huie
