Kuu Tutukane Nui

My tutukane nui, my sweet kupuna nui,
wondering, pondering thoughts of old Hawaii,
all this time I’ve dreamt of you,
wondering where my ea went, wondering how much my kupuna have suffered,
I wondered away, am I the only one that feels this way?
Am I the only one who wants to olelo Hawaii in my own family?
Am I the only one who knows that clorox kills our aina?
Am I the only one that understands the coral and its animals?
INside my body, Am I the only one that finally gets it?
That crack and ice is killing our brains?
Our indigenous minds melting away?
Like disapearing ink? And reappearing immigrants?
one who dwells on high heels
is the one that cannot take care of herself?
Look around, look at the spam and the fried foods killing our people,
who were once proud men and women,
where is the good eating fish? and the opihi? My mouth is watering for these ono foods,
Where are my ono foods?
This isolated place, these brain washing machines , is killing the minds of our people,
Kuu tutukane nui, you must of had a hard life
accepting these changes,
I get you,
I think I understand what you are trying to tell us,
from the laws of our chiefs to the Apology Bill,
we need to live with Ea,
the pono life of the Gods.
