feso’ota’i atu

po, po, po,
manava i totonu; 

may this space light the fire within you that has been extinguished, 
may your peace that’s been disrupted find harmony in all living things, 
may your tino, mafaufau, and agaga feel held, 

I invite you to just be in this space of interconnectedness; 
remember, navigate, reflect, meditate, thank,
manava i totonu; 
exchange your love, your rage, your energy, your joy, your distaste, your healing; 
share what you must with the Moana. 
They will be returned with what you pour into them. 

we are connected, we are profound, we are resilient, we are powerful, 
manava i totonu; 
po, po, po.
