Mourning

One human tapestry

Moti Hamer

When I die, something from me, something from me

Will die in you, will die in you

When you die, something in me, something in me

Will die with you, die with you

Because we are all, yes we are all

We are all one living human tapestry

And if one of us

Leaves us

Something will die in us –

And something, remains with him

If we know how to calm, how to calm

The loathing, if we only knew

If we can, if we can silence our rage (if we can silence)

Despite us taking offence, to say sorry

If we can start from the beginning
