We are born into a community
We are born into a family
We are born to a mother
We learn she is our protector.
The first time we lose our way
Is the first time fear comes into play
We run back to our mother
Knowing she protects us from the danger.
Through different kinds of discipline
We are taught the skills of fitting in
We must respect our kin
If we disobey, we sin.
We most beg for forgiveness
We believe we cannot progress
Without our families by our side
And the lessons and values they provide.
The struggle that appears
We have fought for years
How to become an individual
Without being hurtful?
