Blood & Water

 

Blood. Water. Blood. Water.

Blood is thicker than water.
But blood cannot quench thirst.
Blood cannot heal wounds.
Blood cannot give rise to forests.
Blood is thick, it is slow,
It can halt heart, breath, voice.
Blood spills and poisons
Splitting root to death.
I give no loyalty to blood.
I give loyalty, that of spirit and soul
To those who give me water.
