Standing Rock


Bitter powers
You are not going to shake me
You are not going to break me
What you do won’t make me
I stand with the birth of the land
I stand with the birth of the sky
I stand with the birth of the wind
I stand with the fresh air and waters at Standing Rock
Bitter powers
What you do won’t make me
Or shake me
My resolve will revolve
Deeper and evolve
Stronger, big like the Big Dipper
Water-hose me, strip search me
You won’t shame me
Your dirty hose, and dirty nose
You won’t shame me, I’ll stand
Composed, stripping in the cold
Ice in my hair
Endlessly warm because I care
To be unshaken, unbroken
By your strip searches in water trenches
I stand like the stars, wind, mountains and rain
I stand like rushing rivers
I stand with you on rocks
I stand with you in love
One planet, One people
I stand with you in realness, in the struggle
To protect Mother Earth
I stand with you, Standing Rock
