I am ashamed before the earth; I am ashamed before the heavens; I am ashamed before the dawn...

I am ashamed before the evening twilight;
I am ashamed before the blue sky;
I am ashamed before the sun.
I am ashamed before that standing before me within me which speaks with me.
Some of these things are always looking at me.
I am never out of sight.
Therefore I must tell the truth.
I hold my word tight to my breast.

(- Kenneth Lincoln, "Native American Literatures)
