Granny Told Me

Granny gave me moccasins
To run and play in.
She got them from the pow-wow.
They made me swift
And light on my feet.
She told me
€Remember who you are”

Granny gave me a dream catcher
For my good dreams to fly through
And the bad ones to get caught in.
She got it at the pow-wow.
It made my nightmares go away
And gave me dreams about my ancestors.
She told me
€Remember who you are”

Granny gave me a totem pole
So that I would know our seven clans.
She got it from her father.
The Ani-gatagewi keepers of our land
Ani-gilahi and Ani-waya the peace and war chiefs
The Ani-kawi and Ani-tsiskwa earthly and spirited messengers
Ani-wodi and Ani-sahoni the creators of medicine
She told me
€Remember who you are”

Granny gave me a book
With the words of my people
And their stories.
She got it from the pow-wow.
I learned about our earth mother
And how we grew from her bosom.
She told me
€Remember who you are”

Granny gave me a day
To wear my moccasins.
She took me to the pow-wow.
I saw the people from my stories
And dreams.
My people and clans.
She told me
€You are ᏣᎳᎩᎯ ᏰᎵ (Cherokee)”

*The seven clans of the Cherokee tribe: Ani-gatagewi translates to Wild Potato Clan (keepers of our land), Ani-gilahi are the Long Hair Clan (peace chiefs), Ani-kawi is the Deer Clan (earthly messengers), Ani-sahoni or Blue Paint Clan (medicine for children), Ani-tsiskwa or Bird Clan (spirited messengers), Ani-waya is the Wolf Clan (war chief), Ani-wodi Red Paint Clan (medicine).

You're a Thousand Miles Away, And I Still Haven't Told You

I wish I could say the words
That always seemed to be stuck
In my head or in my throat
Now, you're a thousand miles away
And I still haven't told you
We made tents and I thought that
Should have been fun
But you ruined tents for me too
You're a thousand miles away
And I still haven't told you
Ranch dressing on everything you ate
A common occurrence of yours
That I do not miss
You're a thousand miles away
And I still haven't told you
You showed me the music you liked – “Hollywood Undead”
I still think they suck
You're a thousand miles away
And I still haven't told you
Your excessive piercings and stupid tattoos
Have changed mom and dad's views on teenagers
Thanks for taking that stage in life from me
Just another thing you took
Remember when I told on you
And you were mad
I never told again
You're a thousand miles away
And I still haven't told you
Sometimes when I think about that tent
I can't breathe
And my mind takes me back to that place again
You're a thousand miles away
And I still haven't told you
I'm not happy with the person I am today
I'm not happy at all
I'm not happy that I can't seem to forget
That fucking tent
It's your fault
I was only little
I didn't know
You're a thousand miles away
And I still haven't told you
I didn't realize what I wanted
I didn't realize that what I wanted was missing
I didn't realize that what I wanted was missing because you took it
You're a thousand miles away
And I have to tell you
I want my innocence back

You told me to make myself happy so i knew you weren't going to

I stopped asking if you loved me

Then i stopped asking —
Who you were dreaming of
What you were thinking about
When you were coming back
Where you were going next
Why you were gone so long
How your day was

Not because i didn't care,
Not because it stopped hurting

But because i knew
I didn't want to know
The answer


going,  happy,  knew,  t,  told.

"spend time in my shoes"
But pride will have me barefoot
Unrepentant child

All the things she told me

She told me she loves
Days of green
When soft rain falls.
Yet she always
Seeks shelter
When it rains.

She told me she loves
The hot hazy days of summer
When cloudless sky
And relentless sun
Bake the earth
Yet she covers herself
With sunblock
And sits below a shady tree
When its sunny.

She told me she loves
The feel of the wind
As it wails in the night.
Yey she closes the windows
And shutters when it is windy.

That is why
I am terrified of her
For today
She told me
She loves me.


things,  told.

They Told Me To Kiss You

Under the rain we ran and we splashed
Like we were children again
The clouds were dark
And there was no sun
But you shined your brightest then
Your eyes so blue
They capture you
And never let you go
They watched as I took your hand
And placed it near my heart
I knew you could understand
Kiss they said
And my cheeks glowed red
Even though I've kissed you before
Kiss they said
And I turned my head
And began to blush more
It was in the moment
I decided to do it
I pulled you in
And the kiss began
And damn, I wish it didn't end


kiss,  told.

I indirectly told you so (uhh still working on the title...)

You tried to decipher my
M
I
X
E
d
Signals
P r o b i n g into my feelings and thoughts only grew u s apart
Hope for change in the way that
I am
Only caused us pain
You had told me love would change me but you never took into account all the
flaws
we never knew about
Day after day of trying the same things only ended in
disappointment
despair
and hatred
When our faith in what could be achieved
Ceased to exist
And our love
Finally grew t h i n
O nly few words were left to say


indirectly,  title,  told,  uhh,  working.
