Chief of Attawapistkat First Nation; Canada
"Idle No More"
Woman's Heart: Written in Honour of Chief Theresa Spence.
the government did Dictate for those who worship Greed
and it Cared Not for any with a Need
they said,"Let them All Work harder, for the Fruits of Mother Earth
since they have no Money, then to us they have no Worth
we will Do as we please, as we have always Done
but they did not See what our Lady had Begun
the Wind began to Blow upon our Lady's Spark
but the World had Heard our Lady's whispered shout
you can't quench the Fire that Burns in a Woman's Heart
for It burns the Spirit of Her Love
a Mother's true Desire is to see her People well
and She will Give her All to see that come
the Wind of Truth blew harder and the Fire began to Spread
People could See clearly now, how we had been Mislead
we could See in the name of Greed this way had Long been going on
and there was Hope to see a Loving Dawn
You Can't Quench the Fire that Burns in a Woman's Heart
For in it Burns the Spirit of Her Love
A Mother's true Desire is to See her Children Well
And She will Give Her All to See That Come.
You Can't Quench the Fire that Burns in a Woman's Heart...
