    Description:
       These are nahko's words. I love what he stands for, who he is as an individual, and the hope that he ignites. Grounded. His songs are unique and original and I think his vulnerabilities have created such strength within his lyrics. His writings and songs may not be appreciated by all, but I think That people need to be more open minded to get the wholeness of it all. I believe in the good things coming!

    " I suffered a lot of losses last year.
    what we lose is also what we gain.
    death and birth and
    life and breath and death.
    i cried more tears than
    i’ve ever allowed to fall from my eyes.
    i was harder on myself
    than i’ve ever been before.
    i saw faces and facets of myself
    i never want to see again.
    and yet, some i hope return in time
    with more lines of wisdom
    etched into brown skin. *(the eye?)


    in the last year of my twenties,
    i shaped my life
    into a mold i never imagined
    would fit me. yet,
    with the right people at my side,
    always on time,
    we burst through doors that have always
    been open.
    we hit the ground running.
    learned new ways to trust.
    learned new ways to redirect
    my hate, anger, and frustration.
    fought back old ways and habits.
    relived my past in people and forgave
    myself for conditioning i thought i’d gotten rid of.
    i walked new roads and realized ancient contracts
    resigned to them with youthful fever.

    fell in love once.
    twice.
    three times.
    over and over.
    every day.
    stood on mountains,
    swam in rivers,
    listened to war torn winds
    and opened up to the possibilities
    that love has to offer.
    became confused at its power
    and lost in its feeling.
    stumbled at my own promises,
    got lost in my own poetry,
    found myself in my cosmic melody,
    and became more selfish
    with my solitude and rituals.


    i learned the pain of friendship
    the joys of being an anchor.
    Found the power in my mothers
    the depth in their daughters.
    Saw myself in their children
    Envisioned a future not far off.
    Tasted the poisons of my father and
    the recklessness of his sons.
    I cast the magic and bond of family
    into the arms and work of a band.

    Said goodbye to my sidekick pup,
    to lovers,
    to father-figures,
    to holy rivers run dry,
    and versions of myself.
    Said hello to saturn,
    to new mantras,
    purpose,
    practices,
    to earth projects,
    musical collaborations,
    new territories and
    communities,
    to versions of myself
    i needed to create in order
    to see this life mission through.

    i struggled with understanding
    the backwards problems
    imbalance
    of giving and receiving.
    how ironic and clich�
    to think you are good at both.
    how ironic and embarrassing
    to see yourself in a light not so beautiful.
    and to embrace your flaws and fears.
    to remember you are braver than those things.
    to suffer the consequences in training yourself
    to be the best version of yourself every day.
    and of course,
    revel in the rewards of
    acknowledging your flaws."

    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
    It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
