The Common Color, Blood



The ones we called our Slaves,
The ones we beat,
And deprived of humanity because of color,
Are the ones who fought beside us, in war;
Bleeding,
Crying,
Dying,
as you did.
Feeling what you felt,
Feeling what you feel.
Pain,
Hurt,
Scar-ed as you are scar-ed.
Trained in combat,
To fight as you fight,
Able to be equal,
Only in war.
