Walk two moons poem

Friend do it this way-that is,

whatever you do in life,

do the very best you can

with both your body heart and mind.

And if you do it that way.

the Power of the Universe

will come to tour assistance,

If your heart and mind are in unity.

When one sits in the Hoop of The People,

one must be responsible because,

All of creation is related.

And the hurt of one is the hurt of all

And the honor of one is the honor of all.

And whatever we do effects everything in the universe.

If you do it that way -that is,

if you truly join your heart and mind,

as one-whatever you ask for.

that's the way it's going to be.

WTM poem (paraphrased)

If do it this way-you're good

whatever you in life,

do the very best you can

with your heart & soul

And if you do it like that,

The authority of the universe

will come to help you,

if your heart and soul are united.

When one sits in a circle of friendship,

you must be responsible because

everyone is alike.

When one is hurt,everyone is hurt.

When one is happy, everyone is happy.

And whatever we do effects us later.

If you do it that way-that is,

if you're truly sincere to your heart and mind

so whatever you ask for,

That's the way it will be.
