A Culture Torn (Reply To The Philosophy By Leafsailor On Pf) - Poem by Kaila George

Play Poem Video

Just read a poem about
Who are we?
It covers everything
From political standards
Of how it affects our lives
Religions, wars to the epoch of man
To hatred and racism and violence within

I cannot change what people have learnt
From childhood to adulthood...a culture torn
What right have I to condemn in beliefs
That was part of their lives before I was born
The best I can do, and the best I can say
Is stand up be proud and just be

A HUMAN BEING! ! !
