Border Flowers

Tied up the boundary of the countries
and wall the minds

Flowers blooming on the border
They have a question,
for whom to flower?

East or West?
South or North?
Left or right?
For sunrise or sunset?
White or black?
To create or destroy?

Is there a place to wash the blood stains
that splashes on the chest?

Ears that only hear the sound of shock

To be shot,
burned and became charcoal tomorrow….

A patch of grudge lies
through the scorched leaf veins
It tastes like tears

All the flowers in the border are red in colour
