Family (poem)


Atomistic nucleus,
Sealed tight against the world.
Cultivate a cult,
Paternal god as its leader.

Inculcate your values,
Carve impressions in minds.
Tear down and build up,
Constructed in your image.

Birthed out to the world,
Foreign figures encroaching.
Defending the village,
Against invasions of thought.

The entire world,
Our household.
Every living being,
Our family.
