We are strangers to ourselves,
when our past has been lost,
amongst the tumult of generations,
swayed by assimilation at what cost?
While progress rolls forward,
like a steam roller, it paves the way
toward a brave new world,
flattening the truths of yesterday.
For the digital technocracy to succeed,
it must suppress individual identity,
and borrow nothing from yesteryear,
that would undermine its own supremacy.
Yet, the truth will never become subservient
to the lies of the narrative norm,
for the sake of global convenience,
nor forgotten in the hearts of the reborn.
Our past will redeem us,
our traditions will revive our spirit;
in faith we will reclaim our trust;
our conscience will guide the lyrics.
A new song in our hearts will abide,
a remembrance of our history;
our genuine selves will override
the collective approach to mentality.
Seek nourishment of the soul,
that will not permit the new normal
to take its final insidious toll
upon our belief in what is moral.
