I have not written in a long time. Since, the passing of my Mother all I could post were Prose and Poems. But, "Here I am!" I have climbed out of the Rabbit Hole! Cheers!
Now I am asking for your help! I really want to have my Voice heard. I want to share with everyone my passion, emotions and deep feelings through music. I have been singing for 3 years. Here is a brief story of how I discovered my Voice.
My Mother at the time had Alzheimer's and she was slowly dieing. I would sing to her because she could not speak. One day while singing I heard something in my voice. An "ah ha" moment. I thought to myself, "I need to teach myself how to sing. I like what I am hearing." So, with the help of God and my Mom, I began to sing to my Mother almost everyday. The beautiful and amazing part of music is that my Mother who couldn't speak began to sing words back to me. She tried so hard to sing or pronunciate words when I called her everyday. She was and is my Hero!
She passed away in 2011. I crumbled when she passed away. I thought to myself, "Who am I going to sing to?" I was so sad. Thank God she helped me find my Voice because the only comfort I found was in singing. Since the day she passed away my voice has grown in leaps and bounds. It has turned into something spiritual. I really never knew I had this talent. I was never able to sing in front of her. But today I believe she is with me all the time. Teaching me how to breathe properly and control my voice. She has been my coach, my cheerleader and strength to Never Give Up. She tought me Strength. She faught everyday to speak, sing and know who I was. It was so hard to watch my Mother disappear. But she smiled and giggled til the end. She continues to teach me my possibilities are endless.
Now, I just pray that my Voice will be heard. So, I am reaching out and singing to all of YOU. ;)

O' Great SpiritWhose voice I hear in the winds, And whose breath gives life to all the world, hear me. I am small and weak, I need your strength and wisdom. Let me walk in beauty and make my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunset. Make my hands respect the things you have made and my ears sharp to hear your voice. Make me wise so that I may understand the things you have taught my people Let me learn the lessons you have hidden in every leaf and rock.I seek strength, not to be greater than my brother, but to fight my greatest enemy - myself. Make me always ready to come to you with clean hands and straight eyes. So when life fades, as the fading sunset, my Spirit may come to you without shame. ~Chief Yellow Lark,Lakota
