DISCLAIMERS: The character of Chakotay belongs to Paramount, but the poem is
my own creation.

NOTE: A heartfelt thank you to all Native American writers, whose works
continue to amaze and inspire me with their beauty.

Holodeck Prayer

By Carly Hunter
copyright 1996

Akoo-cheemoya

Today,
I walk upon familiar ground,
but it is not mine.

I swim in familiar waters,
but they are not mine.

And the blue sky above these whispering pines
is not mine.

This ship is not mine.

But her people are.

We follow different paths,
But we travel as one.

Our journey will be long.

So I raise my eyes to this golden sun
And ask the Sky-Father
To guide and protect us all.

Akoo-cheemoya
Bless my people.

Computer,
End program

And save.
