Lost Culture

The island
	Once naive 
now tainted 
by the winds of change
	Once native
now giving birth 
to a race of diverse cultures
	Once a peaceful place
now disturbed
by a rapid modern world
The island
	Once their home
our home
my home
has become an uncertain place in the heart

    Change isn't always good. I feel the discomfort that came with the culture shock. Preserve your way of life through teachings. Profound piece of work!

    Profound write this! It is never easy when the place we call home becomes destroyed right in front of our eyes - you've brought it out well. Well penned Patti!
