Humanoid

Dark eyes with darker pupils staring here
Glazed over with a prejudice within
They look with venom, wonder, hope, and fear
They’re not guilty- just victims of the sin

Deep wounds with deeper anger caught inside
Red blood slides down to join the tears and sweat
Caught in the dark, there’s still no place to hide
The ship sails on an ocean of regret

White sails with whiter masters lead the way
Though every shade had captained SS Hate
Many the trips and many the people with no say
As time plows on toward wealth or death or fate

The scars of violence stain our history
Why are we our own greatest enemy?
