Don't look at me with disappointment.

Don't look at me with disappointment.

A Poem by Coyote Poetry
"

For Lavina K. and Sarah w. They make me feel world is in good hands.

"
                         Don't look at me with disappointment.

Don't look at me.
Don't give me those sad looks of disappointment.
I don't care what you see.

I'm breaking down walls.
I'm not afraid.
Like you, a robot.
Walking the walk of a machine.

All you got is death to wish for.
For your simple dreams and goals will break your heart.

I will laugh.
I did not believe in the rules of the government.
I saw the signs of failure.
I question the  policies and rules.

Give me the morning sunrise.
Time to dance and sing.
Allow the powerful ocean to wash away the dirty rules.
Give me time to find calm and friendship.

I don't want your dirty dreams.
I don't want to hear your lies.
There are too many people already waiting for death.

I want life.
I want to swim in the big ocean storms.
Free climb to high peaks and give thanks to Nature.
I want to feel every pleasure that can be felt.

Give me sweet wine and good beer.
Sweet ladies to dance with and find laughter.
Give me time to appreciate Nature.

I won't allow you to punish me for seeking a different way then you.

I will watch your sad faces.
As I run down the empty beaches.
Looking for peace and calm in this world.
Eating life like a hungry child.

Life is to be lived.
Not hide behind rules and laws that will blind you from the beauty
of a new day.

Run with the wind. Dance with the sea. Celebrate every second of life.

In the Beginning, I lived a very orderly life. Always busy and at the same time thinking bout the Creator. Course we had down time, but that was rare.
Our regiment started when I was five years old and had a routine developed by my Father. Then moved away from home and dealt Clan laws,Tribal customs and etiquette's(sweatlodge,peyote,feast's,fasting,etc.,plus hunting ways) local,municipal,county, state and federal laws as well. I always kept myself in check regardless what was around me. That is just the back ground cause the rules of engagement concerning "relationships and who you were related to and many protocol's just for that and is vital to many relations through-out Native American Tribal People.
I understand the complexity to just my own life which I never thought was complicated. Then One day, I realized by just sitting still my body was in motion and in sync with my pitiful mind. Now my time to enjoy Creation as I observe all these rules and obstacles, till My life cease to exist.
Then, I will be on to new adventures.... Sorry for rambling on my friend.
May the Creator grant you happiness and peace! Life and Light!

As always a good piece. We all want to escape against the path put out for us. Sometimes it's good, sometime's it isn't, and the majority of the time we can't tell.
