Poem for Standing Rock


By Sister Mai Nghiem

Mother, hear our call,

Here we stand.

No matter where we stand,

We are your children.

And we stand for the Truth of our Oneness.

May we stand in the steadiness of your Love

To protect you, Mother,

On your lap, we stand

To protect the humanity of all hearts

Facing each other, we stand.

In the Truth of our Oneness, we stand.

May we stand with no anger.

May we stand with no fear.

May we stand with no discrimination.

May we stand together,

Our hearts beating on the rhythm of the ancestor’s drum.

May we stand in stillness

Calling upon winds and rains to carry our hope,

Opening hearts;

Calling upon stars and suns to radiate our faith,

Opening eyes;

Calling upon hawks, trees and rocks to whisper our truth,

Freeing spirits.

And as we walk,

We’ll keep on standing;

As we sit,

we’ll keep on standing;

As we lie,

We’ll keep on standing

As we dance and sing,

We’ll keep on standing.

Mother, hear our prayer,

For here we stand.
