Traditional, Modern, In Between

From one to another
Jumped like a flame
We spread our culture
Memes to continue
Through generations
An heirloom passed
Burned into our being
It is who we are
Or not
Lighten the confines
Of the box prescribed
Proudly descended
But not our limitations
Becoming
Who it is we want to be
A legacy of dignity
In a wildfire of tradition
Being left in the ashes
Of this modern world
