Hawk says diamonds danced on air
Hawk says creator above put them there
Hawk says Redtail is now my name and
from Wakiyan is where I came

From Thunderbeings, from the rock and
the tree, he gave me these wings and
then set me free

Through eyes of split gold shining so bright
And what I see now? No joy just fright
Shoot at it now, in the tree over there,
is song I hear most when not in the air

And when my heart breaks and I fly no more
I return to Creator and knock on his door
Creator says "Hawk come to me fore you
were my best that's why I made you soar

You tried to show them but they couldn't see
fore they saw the diamonds instead of thee
Now you go and tell them what I said to say
their turn will come just as yours has this day

And when they come stand and look me in the eye
I will tell them the whens and the whys
that it wasn't Hawk race that I choose let die.
It was the human that I chose let go

A selfish race that could never say no
Starving and hungry they let their own grow
No Sacred heart has been brought forth to thee
I gave them everything yet they turned
from me

Diamonds, gold, others, shine so bright
but I am Creator I bring you the light
Remember just once these words you might save
Spirit not diamonds you take to your grave

LadyHawk~
The spirit of ~Hawk~ envelopes
you quite naturally.
Great words of much wisdom.
The Creator shows us that our
ways will bring us to His judgement.
Will we be lacking ?
Reaching for the spirit within
will bring us home to Him.
Beautifully done.

Ladyhawk,

Indeed an inspirational poem.  I really enjoyed it. "Ladyhawk" is also one of my favorite movies.  Well done!
