TEARS IN CHIRICAHUA
Brooks Bradbury
November 2013

ANCIENT CHIRICAHUA
SACRED LONG AGO
NOW CALLED ARIZONA
THEIR ANCESTRAL HOME
THEIR MOUNTAINS AND
THEIR GRASSLANDS
THE PLACES
THEY ROAMED THEN
NOW ONLY TRACES,
OF ‘NDE CHOKONEN

GENERATIONS CAME BEFORE THEM
UNKNOWN APACHE HEIRS
NATIVE BLOOD SPILLED TOO OFTEN
DEFENDING WHAT WAS THEIRS

WHO THEN ONE DAY WILL ATONE
FOR THEIR BROKEN HEARTS
EACH APACHE BROKEN BONE
THEIR BODIES DIED YET SANCTIFY
THEIR CHIRICAHUAS STILL
UNBROKEN NATIVE SPIRITS
UNBROKEN NATIVE WILL

THEIR VOICES WHISPER IN THE SILENCE
SPIRITS ROAM NOW WITHOUT FEARS
WHEN IT RAINS IN CHIRICAHUA
IT RAINS APACHE TEARS
