I am Nagi

Nagi: (Lakota Sioux) - Shadow, Spirit

I am Nagi
I am but a shadow,
an apparition,
a phantom

Those that know me
don't know me
Those that don't
Never will

How can you know me
When I struggle to know myself?

In all the lifetimes
In all the ages
There has been but one
Who knew me - truly

Yet she is asleep
And has yet to awaken

I have met her, you know
Exquisite is she in her blissful slumber
Only knowing what she knows
Yet not what she needs

It is not mine to enlighten her
That, she must on her own

Ah, the patience of a saint
Tis said I to have
As I watch her walk

Tis faith,
I do respond

For when one understands
What one knows truly
Then patience and faith
Along do go

For without faith
There can be no patience

Tis best that she knows not
Hence the scales be not tipped
Even though in my favor
I wouldst not mind the tipping

But the best is to be
As it is

Others that I have met along my travels
could love me, yes,
but I could not give them mine
Anymore than I could give them
the heart from my bosom
and live to wait for the one
that makes the beat of my heart
worth feeling.

And for that
I shall forever wait

Amongst the shadows
Until it is time to emerge
Once again

For I am Nagi

I was given the spirit name Sunkamanitu Nagi Wicasta (Wolf Spirit Warrior) by Eagle Man Ed McGaa, a Lakota Elder and Sundancer, and am beginning to embrace my "Naginess" and am entering into a new phase of this life. Some of my poetry is signed Nagi, some earlier work is signed Matthias. All this may be explained (I think) in the poem "I Am Nagi".
