ma muama hope
ma hopema mua
when my feet follow father across the rocks,
there is always a moment, before sea meets skin
like a storm, like a house of drums,
when my body is
inside me a legacyʻai pōhaku wāhineanswer
ea, daughters, ea mai loko o ka pō.
freedom hungry. ua lawa mākou
i ka pōhaku. we are barefoot and believing
that poʻe tell the satisfaction of rocks, tell the satisfaction of gods.
