Old Ways

 

 

Like little bursts of strong light

We see our own hypocrisies

Though set to live a life of right

The subtle hates we do not see

 

Lessons learned when we were young

Taught by ancient schools of thought

Do somehow later then become

A mental trap in which weโ€™re caught

 

An eye towards race, a judging view

A binary concept of who should love

A socioeconomic skew

A particular sense of God above

 

Parental thinking no legacy

Nor a genetic disposition

There is a different world to see

Not given in their translation

 

Yes, they teach us wrong from right

But, we learn to think critically

And there along our path in life

We must find our own integrity

    Well said, we need to develop our own sense of right from wrong. The world is constantly changing, and we need to adapt…
