Roots and branches
I don’t need populism to tell me where I come from.
I don’t need nationalism to tell me where I belong.
I don’t need dogma’s to provide what I have to think.
I don’t have to define myself through what I am not.
I know my roots, but my branches reach far.
I define my own values and take care of my personal borders,
but they are not set in stone
because you never stop learning.
And those who believe to know everything
have just given up.
Kindreds, with you by my side
I have a whole universe to explore!
