Yesterday’s Future

Reaching for the stars
Lost in the clouds wondering how to
Get back to earth and find a way home
Looking for a home, wondering now
Lost in the stars finding the clouds
Wishing for today to be tomorrows dream
Thinking today will be yesterday soon enough

How bout tomorrow needs today for you to just get through
Impatience delving into the mind
And these city folk don’t understand why
Or that patience lived through the Hounds we’ve already trusted

Society telling you its ok to lust
And don’t trust him or her
just go get your own
and that its your time
Letting love sit on a pedestal
While it eludes the chapters you write

And here’s to success

They say 30s the new 20
But fuck that 30 is 30
Tomorrow’s only a day away but
if you always wait until tomorrow
Then yesterday came too late

And here’s to playing it safe

Left standing around wondering how the days went by
Or where did they go and who, what when, where, and why
wandering astray chasing the ghosts of answers that never had questions in the first place
Sort of makes you want to say
fuck it I’m walking

Clouds clear up and still it’s raining
Daydreaming of summer days and swing sets painted on little vignettes
Tomorrows going by fast enough
And the kids are waiting

Lost in the past when things were easy
living in the now seems not as pleasing
Or what ever seems is seeming
Figuring it out is still figuring it out
While futures kids are waiting for their go around incarnation

When I first discovered you,it was in a photo.I was stunned!You are so physically beautiful.Native men are the epitome of manliness.I’ve always had great respect for Native Americans.I started following you on Facebook,Twitter and YouTube and realized you were so much more than a pretty face!You have a kind heart and a beautiful soul.Your dedication to your people is admirable.I just discovered your Word Press site recently.I love your poems because they can be interpreted in many different ways, depending on who the reader is and what kind of life their leading.Just the other day I discovered your video playing the flute…..a man of many talents! Never change,Martin! There is so much negativity and horror in the world today.Its such a uplifting calming experience visiting one of your sites.It gives me hope.It makes me realize that not all humans are lost.There are many good positive people…..like you!

  2. They told me to wait until I grow up. Now it’s too late. This piece of art reflects exactly how I feel. Amazing how another human being so far from my life, so different from me (or not?) can experience and put into words my exact feelings. Thank you. And yes, don’t wait it’s going to be too late too soon.
