BLOOD ON THE FLOOR Judge me by the heart And not by the skin Now that I have bled Let me bleed you same within The divided still stand But realise within death The haunting of words Still lies on our breath Strangeness of colours sparks fly within range Co-existence and difference labelled dysfunctional change Knowing the tone was incited unbalanced Still born was a wish but vengeance was silence What was once foretold through Iron black dreams Was undone in violence in destiny seams Creation a masterpiece Now ruined in war Blood flowing unleashed On the grey concrete floor
