A Prayer to life
The Hopi say
You must live your life from beginning to end
No one else can do it for you
Hold on to what is good
even if it is a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe
even when it is a tree
that stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do
even when it is a long way from here.
Hold on to life
even when it is easier letting go.
Hold on to my hand
even when I have gone away from you.
– Pueblo –
Copy it and keep it where you will find it and thus to be reminded of Mother Life.
