What i want to start is bigger then just talking circles federal prsions in Minnestoa have these the Stae prison in Nevbraska has this as well as state in SD. But what we want to establish is bigger then just Talking Circles.
We need ourside guests speakers, in the priosn we will have a staff rep who will be our go bewtween guy where as it would normally be the chaplain but he is so busy this will lessen his duties and “excuses” so we may have the tiem to grow and learn spiritulay and help one another to help ourselves. Sports competitions, Out side and inside speaker, we want crafts to make our money for the casue so we can have feeds for the whole prison and buy what we need such as a new drum or sage ad what not. The chaplain limits us becasue we go on a budget.
We want to help near communities the local highschools as well as colleges and make them gifts when they graduate. We want to reach out beyond these walls to help people. We want tot let them know we are hear adn we are not just sitting hear we want to help adn we are striving to be better then what we use to be. All througj native ways.
And yes talkig Circles are apart of it as well as other forms other tribes hear have from there own. We want to do it all. Explor all ways to see what helps others and go with wha is best for the People .ALL PEOPLE not just natives.
we want to teach many many thinsg to help people learn more about themselves, emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritully for better health and to live a happy life adn go home to stay home and pass what they learn to the next generation.

I wish there was a way you could hear these words I write,
Maybe then you’d wake up from your constant night,
You have no idea how much it hurts me to hear you this way,
Knowing how your living regardless of what you say,
At one time you were my everything, we had plans,
We were young with the world at our hands,
Even though we went our seperate ways I still wanted you happy,
Hoping you kept a smile on your face and living free,
Then I get your # to call and I don’t even know who you are,
Listening to you talk, hearing your life left me a new scar,
Becasue I know where your at, I used to be there too,
My own addiction took me away like yours is doing you,
Life is hard but it’s supposed to be so we can learn,
It’s just so hard when I watch those I love take there turn,
The path I took killed me to be reborn anew,
I don’t want you to go through what I had to,
You be careful now and open your eyes and ears,
Look in the mirror, listen to yourself, face your fears,
Your never alone wherever you go or what you do,
Through prayers I am always with you,
Be strong old friend you’ll be fine,
Until next time…

Show me what you mean,
My eyes are open,
You speak but make no sense of what you seen,
This is getting difficult….listen,
I am listening,
All I hear is nonsense,
I still don’t get what your saying,
Are you telling me or yourself? Is there is difference???

Today I was ready to listen,
So I talked to him,
Told him how sorry I was for failing,
How much it hurt me for the way I was living,
Remembering all the things I have done,
Learning from it all, storing wisdom,
Told him how sorry I am for being,
He knows it’s true and what I mean,
Asked for his forgiveness,
And it lifted of my conscience,
For he knows I am sincere within,
He was Me and I was Him.

TRY NOT TO WORRY ABOUT WHAT OTHERS SAY,
KEEP DOING WHAT YOUR DOING EVERYDAY,
IT WILL ONLY HURT AS MUCH AS YOU LET IT,
REMEMBER, LET GO AND NEVER FORGET IT,
DON’T LOSE ANY SLEEP AT NIGHT,
CASUE YOU MUST BE DOING SOMETHING RIGHT.

Hear I wait,
Unknowing my fate,
What I do know is that I am ready,
Ready for what life has to show me,
Ready for whatever may come,
Ready for the road ahead and then some,
But hear I still wait,
Why? Maybe i am not ready for the gate,
When I do leave these walls,
I will do so with better knowledge of laws,
Better knowledge of myself,
Better understanding for life,
When I do leave this place,
My mission is to serve the universe,
And all that resides in it,
For everyone and everything’s benefit.

So much pain,
Comes with the game,
But it was worth it in the end,
To have fun with my friends.
