    "It's What You Do"

    Nightmares exist.
    Sometimes we can't escape them.

    To each is own;
    Everyone has an opinion.
    Despair and destruction,
    The world's darkest meaning.

    Sometimes
    We can't change
    What they say
    Or what they do.

    But
    It's what you do
    That changes things.

    It's your voice
    That will bring the world
    To light
    Or darkness.

    It's your choices
    That will either bring
    A call for peace
    Or painful suffering.

    "Nettie's Life"

    It's a sunny day.
    Wind blowing.
    Cars rolling.
    Dogs barking and howling.
    I sit in my room on the phone,
    Daydreaming.
    I daydream about
    Shopping.
    Swimming.
    Hanging out with friends,
    Seeing loved ones
    And more.
    Relaxing on my cold bed.
    Feeling the cool air is
    Relaxing.
    Hearing TikToks and
    Watching them
    Are joyful.

    I miss the old days,
    But life goes on.

    Once the night comes,
    It gets calm.
    And peaceful.
    I get to go to sleep
    Until the next day arrives.

    "At Home, In Bolton"

    When I was at home during the pandemic,
    I just walk around my neighborhood,
    Play with my dog,
    Sit inside.
    I see woods,
    I see green,
    I see poor dogs.
    I smell that pollen,
    I smell the sap on a trees, the dried up sap,
    the wet sap that's coming down the tree.

    I just see family around Bolton.
    My daddy knows about everybody
    In Bolton,
    So I can't really do nothing
    Bad.

    Bolton is just a home where you could just relax,
    But you can't get too comfortable.
    You just got to be safe.

    During the pandemic,
    I spent more time inside
    Than outside.

    It used to be a trailer,
    But they turned into a house.
    My grandma, me, my cousin,
    My siblings, my mom, my dad.
    And then you got my aunt that lives there too.

    Sometimes I just hear peaceful,
    The birds are tweeting.
    The most peaceful is at 4:00,
    5:00 or 6:00.
    The school busses come around 7:00
    And sometimes come at 6:00.

    It feels home,
    It feels like I'm safe.

    "It's Time To Game"

    During the pandemic,
    I spent a lot of time gaming.
    Mystery games, challenge games, story games.
    Games that you could just do
    Whatever you like.
    Some people think it's wrong,
    While some say it's life.
    No time to fight,
    Because that don't feel right.

    Make a career out of gaming.
    May be ridiculous to some.
    I go to another dimension.
    It takes away a lot of tension,
    Like if you come home
    From a stressful day at school,
    Wou could just go on your tablet
    Or you whatever you have
    And play on it.

    Some people say I spend a little too much on it.
    I'm in the middle about that.
    Makes me want to stay in the house more,
    But it gave me something to do at home.

    To me it's not lame,
    So it's time to game.

    "Powwow Daydreaming"

    When I close my eyes,
    I hear bells on men's regalias.
    I hear them jingling
    As they walk around the arena.
    On the outskirts,
    The men and women are around the drum
    As they sing in unison.
    I smell the sage,
    Burned to bless the grounds.
    The leather backing
    From the beadwork on my regalia.
    I hear the MC announce my category,
    Teen Girls Traditional.
    The singers prepare to sing
    My contest song.
    As I hear the first beat,
    Boom.
    I take a deep breath
    And get ready to dance.
    We move counterclockwise
    To the beat of the drum.
    There is a tension and a balance
    Between grace and dancing hard.
    The more I bend my knees,
    The more my shawl sways.
    I'm floating.
    The first honor beat comes.
    I start to bend
    Slowly
    And as the beat picks up,
    I rise,
    My heart beating.
    I take deep breaths
    To keep emotion from my face.

    When I open my eyes,
    I see the bright green walls of my bedroom.
    There will be no dancing this year,
    Just the hum of TV.
    The whir of the fan.
    I am alone with my daydreams of powwows.
