I wonder,

The lives my people led

The confusion they felt

Ghosts-like people sprung on them

Overthrew them

Blinded them

“raped” them of values

My civilized people

Yet tagged monkeys

My respectful people

Tagged backward

Ahh! Our customary legal system

Termed inadequate

Our lifestyle

Named repugnant

Anger swells

They met us rich

Rich in culture

Rich in happiness

Rich in love

They left us bereft

Thus, we feel inadequate

We are still blind

We copy blindly

Our fashion, we copy

Our speech, we copy

Our lifestyle, we copy

Our foods, we copy

Our skin, we copy

Our laws, we copy

Values have gone extinct

It is never too late

People repent

Own your skin; own your life.
