Tell me the story of my native land
the place where my early life was nurtured
and my ambient being was cultured.
And my roots shall not wither.
Tell me what you know about my clan,
the people that did all they can
to keep a patriarchal legacy with their lifespan
and preserved an ancestral totem with a rare plan.
Tell the truth
though it hurts my youth.
But it shall spur me to undo the error
that has long kept us in terror.
