Once, the skin of all was black

Now, for so many, it has faded

as has their humanity

 Crystal clear tears of the still, human

flow in rivers on

 the streets of “freedom”

 while their blood spills

red, then dries to black

But the flesh of the fake

contemptible, vile

is pale and bloodless

There’s a large hole in my life raft

although I’d not fought much against the deep gouge

where my blood flowed swiftly away

along the ever-moving river

So, I am left with starting something new

along with all its dizzying freedoms

while I keep thinking of jumping

into the deepest part of that taunting river

even knowing, I will most surely drown

 

You choose to stand there

in between the hands of love

and I don’t know why

it only makes yours filthy

with the blood you’ve spilled on them
