This poem is called "The Invitation". It was written by Oriah Mountain Dreamer. Her first name coming to her in a dream and Mountain Dreamer given to her by a Shamanic Healer. She is not an Indian Elder nor is she an American Indian.
I live my life by this I completely cut people out if they hurt me enough. Some people judge me harshly because they think that I'm to harsh. But the truth is I cut people out because I find that this is the only way to continue with my life.
