Some relationships are permanently strained,
They're born in conflict and in such remain,
Life and death exist this way,
For one to be the other must pay,
The deal is one sided and completely rotten,
But the terrible price is always forgotten,
By the makers of one and dealers of the other,
The price is no debt when there's no love for one's brother,
Some blinded by greed and others by color,
A fight for equality is good and righteous,
But not if sought through murder and violence,
Now you may wonder if my skin is dark or light,
But would either decide if I'm wrong or right?
The saying is that to forgive is divine,
So I'll start with mine,
To my devilish tormentors, the rotten few,
With all of my heart, I forgive you,
Born under one flag of the same nation,
Why do you turn from your salvation?
If none can find a way to forgive,
Then when it's done, none shall live.
Life and death may be like unruly twins,
But if no peace is found, only death wins.
