The color red splashed upon the black and white pages
As I turned the page yet again there it appeared
The words that where so distinctly chosen
So boldly placed in this binding of letters
The color I could not ignore

At first I did not understand the importance
And the reasoning behind the color
But than as I read, it all started to make sense

Life, joy, love, hope, truth shared the color
And than I realized why red was chosen
The same color that was spread on those pages
Was also shed for the very meaning of the words

An innocent man's blood shed to remind me
That nothing else matters
This I can't ignore
