The poem(s) are below...


Blood unite
Blood collide

In her womb
You were a parasite
In her breast
You fed
And in your father's blood
You lived

What you know
Is only where you stand
And the bloodline

You cannot deny
You cannot defeat
It's running in your vein
The pulse I feel
The beat of your heart I hear

You decide
Whether to look back or not
For in the grave
They will rest

They walk in heaven
Watching you from the stars above
Their hearts singing in agony
Watching you carry the cross

In her womb
Her heartbeat was once your lullaby
Blood collide
Blood unite
If. Again.
