(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;

– Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, Article II

Burned, charred to black as coal
entire people, a culture little different
what for was never questioned?
what for, was never answered.
Source of hate, i have never seen
hatred we hold for our kin
colour of skin, colour of flag
colour of things so myriad
Colour of my blood and yours is same
the same deep red
then why scar your skin with my sword
or my land with your pen
Generations lost in entire madness
subject to whim and vengeance
for material rewards ever so transient
quickly washed away by the blood that was spilled
made nauseous by the putrid stench

Question the reason of my flawed existence
if i deny that right to my neighbour
Anger in the futility and the helplessness
while pictures recount the horror and Holocaust
Account for all the hatred
Source of all hatred is Us
Slay the demon inside
and then we think alike
Blood warm pusling through the veins
spent in labour of love and life
is more valuable than
blood spilled in the name of skin, land and religious strife.


  1. your words tear the heart...
    every word so true - every statement worth comtemplating on...
    and the pics - they make you shudder - in pain, in fear - fear of that one human mind, that one compromised soul that can cause destruction...

    I still find it hard to believe that something like this can have really happened!

  2. The worst part is we know we are inflicting this upon someone else, but we will not stop....endless brutalities brought to bear.....all the gory details are on Wiki....but they do tear you apart...

  3. The lyrics remind me of Slayer....the pics, of the barbarism of human race.

  4. @dreamcatcher......Slayer was an inspiration behind this coming out...
