Respect For The Shaman

Called by the Spirit, creator of all things,

Protector of Life, Healer, The Peoples Guide.

Freeing the Soul with drumbeats, the Shaman sings,

Traveling other worlds, where secrets may hide.

Restoring Life to Balance, with Peace it brings,

between Flesh and Spirit, when Joy will abide.

A lonely path the Shaman walks with Wisdom,

while comforting the People, when troubles come.




For the 8 lines Native Cultures contest.
