Poem by John Trudell

I flew with the eagles
Until I fell from the nest
I ran with the wolves
then I got lost from the pack

Slowly I go crazy everyday
Some days run faster than others
I never strayed into heaven
It was hard getting past hell
I travelled through and beyond
The death and birth of man

I am ectomy

Imagine running out of imagine
Mistaking authority for power
Weaving life's free spirit
Into patterns of control

I heard all that was said
Until now I hear nothing at all
The edge between twilight and dark
The great lie lurks
Prostitution of soul
Anyone can do it - or not
I went down some roads that stopped me dead in my tracks

I am ectomy

I've been the mirror to others' reflecting selves
I've known love that can't help but love
And I have been close to that hurting way of love

I flew with the eagles
Until I fell from the nest
I ran with the wolves
Then got lost from the pack

From the earth
Wind cave memories
One with the sky
Time of different motions
Dog days dreamer
Chasing the neon woven into minds

From my place in line
I fell out of order
I've been here, I've been there
I've been anywhere
And I haven't been anywhere
And I'll be back again

I am ectomy

Imagine running out of imagine
Mistaking authority for power
Weaving life's free spirit
Into patterns of control

In the reality of many realities
How we see what we see
Affects the quality of our reality

We are children of earth and sky
DNA (Descendent Now Ancestor)
Human being, physical spirit
Bone flesh blood as spirit
Metal mineral water as spirit

We are in time and space
But we are from beyond time and space
The past is part of the present
The future is part of the present
Life and being are interwoven
We are the DNA of earth, moon, planets, stars
We are related to the universal
Creator, created, creation
Spirit and intelligence
With clarity, being and human as power

We are a part of the memories of evolution
These memories carry knowledge
These memories carry identity
Beneath race, gender, class, age
Beneath citizen, business, state, religion
We are human beings
And these memories are trying to remind us
"Human beings, human beings,
It's time to rise up, remember who we are!"
