May the Wolf and Raven Spirits Guide you on your journey.

It is better to live
in the spirit of resistance
then to exist
in a world of illusion

counting, as yesterdays allies edge to retreat
reactionary illusion, a new enemy being born
in an attempt to bring all under control
the politicals, the new man god
trying to change all into images of them
exploiting peace to get their way

never once understanding
our place in the creation
we are the trees and the flowers
with endurance a generosity of struggle

to balance ballots and bullets
military economic repression
with self destruction
a completion of guilt
