Born of the Same Blood

Born of the same blood

But born with different faces.

We are made with mistakes,

But I am made of many.

Unforgivable, unforgettable,

Only some can be erased.

Products of the same fate,

Products of the same name.

We are similar,

Yet could not be so far apart.

Because, where one is loved,

The other is forgotten.

Where one is loved,

The other is punished.

And my many mistakes

Often lead others to forgetfulness,

And they often lead

To my own punishment.

Born of the same blood,

But treated like different species.

One is vermin,

The other is gold.
