I Am Sure

I came from a clan
  whose memory
    has long since faded,
Whose songs tremble
  only in my bones
    when the wind brings life, and death
    when waves crash on the shore.
In my clan
  the creative power was honored.
    I am sure of it.
In my clan
  children were cherished.
    I know,
    for I am here.
How can anyone
  question my origin?
I am of the earth.
  I am from the sky.
The songs endure within me.
    I am sure of it.
