Your Brown Face

This land has a brown face
there is blue sky
and green grasses growing underneath
this land has a brown face
you see it in the mountains
that still smile
season after season
this land has a brown face
this land is a brown face
brown tears fill empty cups
with rain and river
music
you can’t stop the wind from
remembering the brown face
that is you
this land is sorrows without you
the brown of your face is in the land
the brown of your voice stirs the grass
Walls are useless
It cannot hide the brown of your face
this land is a brown face
this land is a black river
this land is a memory of brown
a memory of brown feet
that have walked every inch,
every corner of this land that cannot
be kept from you
this land is a brown face
No wall can keep you from the land
No wall can keep out the love
That is you
