War paint.
Every day, after combing hair.
War paint.
I saw it. It was so clear.
I must put on the war paint and…
What does the wind tell me?
My sister.
Where do I go?
My brother.
All my father’s people are gone.
The one who took them I can not fight.
But still I must ware the war paint.
These people know nothing.
They are like children.
Where are my children?
Mother help me.
Father guide me.
I must be strong.
War is coming.
The wind told me.
