A Lost Culture

"Our culture seems to be lost.
We have attempted to wipe it out at all cost.
Sad indeed it is to see a people lose their way,
But the consequences of our actions are for the future generations to pay.
Why oh Why must our culture be thrown aside?
Is it not our identity that's always right by our side?
confused and lost in the midst of an un-known nationality,
Taking it as our own while truly it's our enmity.
Bitter and painful my wounds have become,
Our identity calls out to us, "Please oh Please my child come!".
We look for acceptance in a place we do not belong,
For how long will we fake an identity that's not ours - how long???
Please, come back to your way of life,
Be amongst the few that strive."
