Creative Brief

based on the words of Chief Tecumseh of the Shawnee People

from my tribe I take nothing 

I make my own fate 
when your time comes to die 
let thou not be late 
not like those who fear of death 
every single night 
sing your death song brave and strong 
as you step into light   
sing your death song like a hero 
who has nothing left 
but the soul that made the man 
who lives after death 
so when you rise up in morning 
give thanks for your life 
it's your own fault if you can not 
and go under the knife 
we are but a moment here 
so let us form one heart one hand 
to protect our fathers' graves 
and defend our land 
when legends die the dreams will end 
and greatness is no more 
and shall fly beyond the moon 
and we shall not make war 
I have made me what I am 
and journeyed far and wide 
and now I travel as I can 
across the great divide
