Black And White
In this infinity of darkness,
Hidden in deserts of death,
Lies a speck, a grain of meaning,
We live single moments in an eternity of existence,
We've got one second to pose,
One second before curtains,
One breath, one life,
To be spent in a circle of suffering,
Murders and thieves,
Greed and hate.
I lurk in shadows,
Which bear my name.
I live in blind whispers,
And in shame.
Of the person I am,
The people I've known,
And the people I am.
My lands where mine have bled,
The fields which mine have made,
The ruins of mine great legacy,
To be spat on in disgrace,
As devils of our race.
I walk the streets at night,
I've never seen the light,
That my dad pointed to and smiled,
With one hand on my shoulder,
A long time ago,
In a place I can't quite remember,
In a land I can't quite pronounce,
On an earth unreddened, and futures clean,
Where I ran in liberty
With a heart of purity and eyes of glee,
I rest my back on a great tree,
With pride and dignity,
And enjoy the moment,
Savor the breathe,
For I know it can't last before the coin is turned.
Then it came unthinkably,
It came in power and in will,
And defied the land on which I walk and dream
And decreed me inept as a human being.
I live on sweet memories,
For I know there wont be anymore,
I thank Jah that I live and breathe,
But curse the moment he closed his eyes,
My world collapsed on me,
I cried and cried at the darkened skies,
And I gazed at the stars,
Death will not stop my words echoing,
