Sorrow is no longer a word

Sorrow is no longer a word….as sadness….
as loss….

They are no longer words
If you are brown……if you are the
Other….they have not been words for us
For a long time….
They exist with us….

Fear is a word to us….
It marks the path of our enemies….

They fear….
They are not like us…we can smell their dead souls….
Their empty shadows….

Colorless….
Alone…..
