The beauty of Life

The beauty of life
Bringing my anxiety to light
All the hurt all the pain
drugs and alcohol drive me insane
Meditation with eagles up in the mountains
Sovereign nation sobriety
Changing our image
Letting the white man see that
Drugs and alcohol can’t take the native path from me
Say no to drugs and find the beauty in your life soar with the eagles and follow the steps of our ancestors out of the past and in to the future


Hello. At my college there is Native American Burial Ground Hills. I’m simply wondering if it’s considered disrespectful to stand or sit on the hills or relax. I haven’t done it because I’m worried about if it’s distasteful or not.
