This white man apologizes,
as I look East out over the plain
of regret.

Peace, once a birthright of an
indigenous soul… it dreamed
to always be, leader in a land
it felt blessed to soar in, Truth
was in the water that flowed clean
and crisp and clear—

Cold and refreshing to the touch.

White men came.

Why did they come?

What was wrong with the land God
had given them?

Did we lose our gratitude?
