For my brother


I am the nurturance of the Sun

I am the power on the mountain

I am the introspection of the forest

I am the wisdom of the salmon

I am the strength of rock

I am the protector of my tribe

I am the bright one with a strong hand

I am the wrath of the sea

I am the silver hand of chivalry

I am eloquence and knowledge

I am the skill and deftness of the hawk

I am the bear, instinct coupled with intuition

I am a hound of loyalty

I am the guidance and hope of the North Star

I am the wind that fills your sails

I am the wisdom of a brother

I am the guiding hand of a father
