#8 – Humanization (Pantoum)

I stand upon the precipice of knowledge,
knowing the world revolves around nothingness.
Red, yellow, black, and white learned this lesson once,
before man discovered himself as different.

Knowing the world revolves around nothingness,
I prayed to my scarred ancient ancestor,
before man discovered himself as different,
and, he blessed my sword and shield as one.

i prayed to my scarred ancient ancestor,
How may i survive such a world?”
And, he blessed my sword and shield as one.
His reply was a touch, and said, “Be true chowilawu.”

How may I survive such a world?
I stand upon the precipice of knowledge.”
His reply was a touch, and said, “Be true chowilawu.
Red, yellow, black, and white learned this lesson once.”
