Oil and Water

My love when did my skin become poison

And my heart not good enough to reside

When did my words become a repellent

And hatred grew between you and I

When did you decide definitely

that you won't seek any like me

When did your own mothers beauty

Become the thing that makes you leave

When did you stop looking

for the love between you and I

Was is when you realized that you see

your true self in the reflection in my eyes

When did our children become substandard

While you think you're creating a superior breed

Because the strength of this ancient DNA

will make your daughter look like me

When will you realize that no matter how far

you run away

 the roots so deep inside of you

will give your true identity away.
