Walk in My Soul
by Lucia St. Clair Robson
ps i thought i would give you a copy of the poem your book walk in my soul inspired. although my reviews of books do not go back this far, i read Lucia St Clair Robsons book in high school, the following is a poem i wrote in responce to the story, part of an assingment for ap american history, and my old boy friend there gave me the first line…
Echo of the trail of tears
Struggle down the white man’s path,
surrendering our spirit,
so many days we tread the line,
our lives are lost, hopelessly,
we have no more arrows;
we have no more food;
while treading on the black dirt,
our footsteps the mark of pain.
so many of us have died,
from disease the white man brought,
while soldiers parade up and down the line,
Our women are weary,
Our children, starving,
Our shaman are dying
and the winter is hard.
Each day another grave is dug,
as we lay down our brothers,
In silence with no song sung.
we were taken form our home with out
a blanket or food.
the soldier armed with guns and papers
steal all that is left behind.
kept in holding areas with disease and death.
Not knowing if tomorrow would bring quenching air.
Our bellies starving, our men sesert us to find homes in the wilderness.
pr are secreted away by whiskey and wicked men.
In desolation we arrive to our new land;
in fear that this too would be taken away.
By the two tounged white man.
Theresa Hulongbayan and Michael ciccone
