Where Are You From?

November 6, 2008
By Griffin Dellaverson, Los Angeles, CA

I am from a culture of opinions:

where war is necessary and conflict is
inevitable,
where Heaven is an illusion and Peace is a
dream,
where right is when you can justify and wrong is when you
cannot.

this world has become unstable and
nothing
is set in stone.

But where opinions are malleable stone is
not.
This world was meant for changing;

Where are you from?


The author's comments:
I wrote this because I came to a recent realization. We cannot live in peace because we are not the same peoples. Our cultures are saturated with opinions and tradition, as well as difference- that is what makes them seperate from other cultures. Adding to that, it is often that we cannot agree with another culture because our morales no not agree with each other... The world of peace is one without opinion, culture and chivalry.
