WATER I (THE WATER) MY FATHER USED TO SAY “MY DARLING, WHAT’S YOUR STRATEGY? CAUSE YOUR PEOPLE WON’T SURVIVE ALONE ON ALL THAT THEORY FEED YOUR MIND BUT USE YOUR HEART TO BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE” SO THIS IS HOW I WALK THE PATH CREATOR MADE FOR ME WHEN I EAT THE RICE, THEN I CLEAN THE BOWL IF I SCORCH THE SKY THEN I MEND THE HOLE IF I SLAY THE HERD, EVERYONE PAYS THE TOLL BECAUSE WE ALL HAVE TO DRINK THE WATER I LEFT HOME FOR EDUCATION TO REPLETE AN EAGER MIND WITH MY WISDOM TO RECOVER AND MY YOUNG WILL TO REFINE WHAT MY PEOPLE KNEW OF FISHING THEY’D FORGOTTEN OVER TIME SO I RETURNED HOME TO MY PEOPLE WITH A FISHING LINE AND WHEN WE EAT THE RICE, WE CLEAN THE BOWL. IF WE SCORCH THE SKY THEN WE MEND THE HOLE AND WE’LL CATCH THE WIND BECAUSE WE CAN’T CLEAN THE COAL AND WE ALL HAVE TO DRINK THE WATER 100 YEARS AFTER I WAS KILLED BY CALVARY I JOURNEYED TO THE GREAT WHITE LAND TO SEEK APOLOGY TOM DASCHEL SAID HE’D ONLY GRANT THE STATE’S REGRETS TO ME CAUSE APOLOGIZING ONE TIME MIGHT JUST SET THE FLOODGATES FREE BUT YOU ATE THE RICE NOW YOU CLEAN THE BOWL. YOU SCORCHED THE SKY SO YOU MUST MEND THE HOLE YOU TOOK MY VOICE RIGHT WITH THE LAND YOU STOLE BUT WE ALL HAVE TO DRINK THE WATER YES YOU ATE THE RICE SO YOU CLEAN THE BOWL YOU SCORCHED THE SKY SO YOU MUST MEND THE HOLE YOU SLAYED THE HERD AND STILL WON’T PAY THE TOLL BUT WE ALL HAVE TO DRINK THE WATER
