thoughts from my mind to yours

My heart still bleeds

28 Comments

My heart still bleeds the color red
like your ancestors and mine
it still bleeds red…
under the color of my skin
of your skin…
BROWN
BLACK
WHITE
OLIVE
HARD TO DEFINE SKIN TONES
But it still bleeds RED
RED
The color that unifies
humanity
which bleeds
with decades of injustice
Prejudice and Silence
For you see the colors don’t speak
but our actions do
and my heart still bleeds the color red
like your ancestors and mine
and it’s time we listen
we unite against injustice
we unite in peace
and rise with love
for LOVE bleeds RED
when left unheard.

  1. Beautifully written, my heart goes out to the people who are mistreated on the basis of color, gender, race, religion.
    People should be treated on how they treat others, and hopefully with a heart full of compassion and empathy.
    We need to shift ourselves to a Higher consciousness, and get above discrimination, wars, and violence.

  2. Great choice of words, reflective poem of the feel of the times.
