Blood Mountain - Poem

of what earth does it derive?
down what path does it flow?
happiness, fate and sorrow
gleaming through the sad face

does it follow a beat?
does its' cries feel hollow?
sure dreams are tarnished
suppression counts on its' failure

from whince it came
my voice follows
Does the shallow cry feel my sorrow?
does the blood run yellow?
