#28 - 'the other'

A dark line drawn across the map, the land,
the hearts and hopes. An old inconstant lover
turned traitor. Wars conducted undercover.

A cold, coherent stratagem that's planned
to split the world, to conquer and expand.
A paradigm which relegates your brothers
and sisters to the status of 'the other'.

My soul is slowly sucked into quicksand
I love you, fear you, curse you to your grave,
I want you, but your hate poisons my mind
a new refinement of an ancient art.

As flickering shadows play across the cave,
we drift into a dream of humankind
that more unites us than sets us apart.
