PRELUDE: It is Important That You Understand, Before Reading This

This is my writing, my own ideas on the Man, the Legend, the Hero and also the one shunned by many of his own for causing so much harm and bloodshed among his People... I wrote this in 15 minutes, as I looked at his picture...

These are my own thoughts, personal ones, that I wish to share.
I do not pretend to know anything, just what I feel deep inside.

PRELUDE:It is important that you understand, before reading this writing, myfriends, that I do not pretend to know or think to know whatGeronimo thought as this picture was taken. This image 'spoke' to me in my language, and what I felt, I wrotedown in fifteen minutes, to share with all of you.It is what I know to be true, for me, for my heart only, as I learn touncover the One and Only Truth of (what is still happening to thisday) to the First People of this land. It comes to me after studyingfor the past fifteen years, on what my heart tells me to be nothingshort of the Ethnic Cleansing of the Indian Nations.'Geronimo'
 
I should have killed them all when I had the chance
 
I should have slaughtered them all as they did my Family
 
My mother, my wife and my three children,laying in their own pools of blood upon my return from Hanos
 
Now I am here in this wretched place
 
I am worth nothing to myself nor to others of my Tribe
 
taking orders from the young ‘white eye’ that care not if I live or dieEverything Sacred to me has been taken awayOur own blood, the land that sustained us,is now occupied by thugs and thieves
 
Why is it that we were the very land on which we lived,loved and thrived
 
and now,we have to accept what the ‘white eye’ saysand stay here on this reservation?
 
What has happened that they now control,and we have to ‘obey’?
 
I should have slaughtered them all mercilesslyas my heart told me so
 
 These ‘savages’ …‘barbarians’ that come and take what is not theirs
 
and then spew us out like the spit of tobaccothat they chew and discard
 
I have tried the life that they ‘ordered’ of me … many times …but cannot accept it anymore,although I have cried,
 
and I have tried
 
I have tried to be a farmer,to dig trenches,to plant in the ground that cannot sustain life,the ground that cracksfrom the heat of the sun
 
'Even the dogs do not like it here, at San Carlos...'But I will never be a ‘scout’ for any armyand hunt down my own
 
as others of my very Tribe were before,and helped to hunt me down for their masters
 
 They will all pay dearly - not by my hand,for I am now tired and old and weak
 
But by their very own selves,they will create their own failures,their own death, in their strange,horrid, and heartless ways
 
It will be cast upon them as we,the Apaches, like so many other tribes,had to bear their injusticeswhile they now thrive on the land that was once ours
 
I cannot stay here
 
I must hear my heart
 
and fight
 
and fight
 
and fight
 
‘til the ‘white eyes’ are no more…
