I am one with my enemy


The spirit of my fathers bid me fight
To defend the honour that was won with blood

I am one with my enemy at the point of death
I feel neither pain nor sorrow

I am the future of my people
I am the history that yet breathes
I am the past seen through the eagle's eyes

With the final stroke I am at hell's fiery gates
    I am at heaven's door
    I am one with my enemy
    I am one with my people

I am the wind in the trees
    whistling the death knell
I am the ocean wave breaking on rugged cliffs
I am the bearded eagle riding the clouds of heaven

I ... am ... one ... with ... my ... enemy.
I ... am ... one ... with ... my ... people.
