The Movement is Still Strong

By  :  Chase IronEyes

The movement is still strong, it never died

No more uncles in despair, thinking “at least we tried”

The power of the drum, shakes the foundations

Grips you like lightning, heart palpitations

All warriors to the center, time to be painted

No cameras allowed, lest the spirit be tainted

Grammas and aunties breathing sighs of relief,

Finally…reinforcements, these young ones believe

Enter the war cry and the LILILILILI, inexplicable spirit-the song we sing

Depths of our souls; powers of the earth we bring

Chills down our spines, we’re ready, for whatever may be

Feeling the power; our souls knowing the commitment

Even when we didn’t know, we knew that we missed it

We are not terrorists and we are not resistant

We are compassionate and loving, undying persistence

We know no other way than to love who we are

Happy to see the world with our eyes, no remote viewing from afar

The movement is the children as they play on the side, so happy so proud, nothing to hide

Spirits unconquerable, brave with the wind, humble pride

The movement is a father, teaching his son how to ride

The movement is a mother, not counting the tears she’s cried

Praying for her sons’ safety and her daughters on the rise,

Warriors evolving, more dangerous than bombs

I feel it coming in the air, the storm and the calm

The movements been here, guiding us along

We will always be here, forever and ever strong
