Seventh generation you returned as promised

warrior woman given the duty to heal.


Returned for the next seven generations

birthed from ravaged wombs.


You brought tranquility with hugs

peaceful food to heal minds and spirits.


Standing strong as your shoulders

hold the weight of seven pasts.


Doing your duty so that your grandchildren’s

generations will see peace.


Bringing together warrior friends to cleanse

wombs; making whole that which is torn.


Warrior woman you are seven.
