You’ve planted the seed
The soil, the hatred
The water, anger

The plant will grow
Getting bigger and bigger
Its spreading will never cease

You cannot stop it
You cannot turn back time
What was done is done

Its pollen is spreading
Like rumors
Like gossip

Cursing the land to start more life
Life of sickness and sorrow

I will always remember
It will always hang over my head
For the seed has been planted, it cannot be undone
