All Souls Day

Prayer for the Dead
by Toni Truesdale

To all those conquered bones,
With the painful solitude of lone closed eyes.
It’s not just the victim that dies.
Did gold, silver and slaves
Make this destiny just?
Or did fate rape those women in lust?
Can they ‘save’ the souls
To make it just?
Or did Manifest greed burn the cross in the night?

Would it not be right,
To look back at 500 years;
And say to those dead
That we finally see their tears?
And to each that has suffered
Say a prayer for peace;
For the sake of the future
And the hope of release;
From that continuing cycle
Of servant of master...

Female power of healing

“Healing Light”

by Toni Truesdale

The archaic texts of the ancients allude to the talents of women

in prophecy and healing. They are direct gifts from the

body of our primordial mother, Earth.

Indigenous Peoples day: in the Footsteps of the Ancestors

Remember the sacrifices and strength,
The ancestors are the 
Foundation of this country.
The peacemakers and the warriors that fought to preserve,
 The mothers who have been the teachers of language and culture.
We all give thanks to them that came before
To ensure the Nations are still here,
The children of this generation will help save the world.
