I’m going to watch you die…
but before I do
I will foretell your story

The story of the White Bird
The Great Mystery
and the Silver Seed

The White Bird carries
in its talons
the Silver Seed of all mankind

A seed that will allow you
to move past what you have been afraid
of for so long

When the White Bird
passes overhead
it will drop the Silver Seed

You must be dead
before the seed
touches the ground

Then, the White bird
will turn into
the legendary Hawk of Thunder

And carry you off
into the land
of the great Wakan Tanka

The decision to leave
being yours
and yours alone

Passing beyond
what time has frozen
—passing beyond what then has been
