Do not tame your wildflowers. 

They were not meant to be kept that way, 

and they will wither. 


Do not take away

the fur of the wolf. 

She has earned it, 

it is hers to keep. 


Do not strip the feathers from the headress

of the warrior. 

They are markers of old battles and new beginnings. 


Do not look down at the way the old woman 

lifts her chin. 

She may walk as she pleases, 

for she has passed through hell itself 

to the other side. 


And do not tame the wildflowers, 

They will never grow that way,
