In one single tear I shed,

I'd like to think I weep

One single ocean.


And in that ocean,

There are fearless pirates

With glinting swords


Who attack

Fearful seafarers with only

An unblemished jugular to offer.


And these reckless pirates

Grope greedily at their bounty.

Red souls painted upon fickle fingers.


I come to the realisation that

I have an ocean full of souls

Gliding down my sorrowful blush.


And within my palms

I hold a universal grief for

The injustices of a million massacres.
