Gord Downie writes a poem /lyrics through Sterling Sinclair a couple of days after Downie died. 

For David Bowie, I sat down and let him inspire words to be written through me during a trance state. It was a beautiful piece. It was well received by few and violently opposed by several more. Nonetheless, it was a magnificent moment for me. I was glad to record such an amazing piece for grieving Bowie fans. 

So this morning, I felt an urger to draw to process my emotions and as I was drawing the Auracature lines, words began to pour out upon the page. In these words, he calls for all of us to seek fair compensation, reconciliation, justice for Canada’s first peoples.

“Her Children Die from Centuries of Pain

Kick off your shoes – go dance in the rain.”
“Together We Are One”

By Sterling Sinclair
“Remember not me

Remember the work to be done

It was never about my battle

Their stories had to be sung
The battle’s not over

Much work’s need done

We fight the battle together

Until the battle is won
Upon blood soaked prairies

She gathers her young

How’d she wake in her mourning

Her fallen knight was her son
How can she see the light

From fear we mustn’t run

Look into her black brown eyes

Reserved, her soul was shunned
The fight to live’s not over

The fight has just begun.

Oh Canada, do you even listen?

Sorrow is being Sung
Grieve not my recent passing

Seeking justice is not fun

My death is not the message

I’m a husband, father, son
First peoples are in danger

No matter the spin that is spun

Pour your tears upon the lands

Cuz, healing’s barely begun
If you honour my memory

If I am Canada’s true son

Instead of being saddened

Go out and help someone
The war will be over

The battle will be won

When all people come together

And together we are one.”
Much love and Many Blessings, S
