She has witnessed the passing of her people
eyes of realize have bled rivers along the trail of tears
The loss of humanity, heritage and honor etched eternal
shame and sorrow our burden engraved in unforgiving years
A history of ignorance written by bloodstained hands of man
raped, pillaged, and murdered then called themselves pioneers
In the absence of conscious ... in the absence of humane
we reduced a proud race to tourist attractions and souvenirs
powerful words it is refreshing to see poets acknowledge a proud race who were almost wiped out for the sake of white man's progress, and the fact that the poem was written by two of passion's finest makes it even more powerful. beautifully written guys.
"across the unfair divide
where black will never meet white
so read my token lips
like they never exist"
