The Apple and The Tree

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree

What is the apple and what is the tree?

The tree is my father and the apple is me

                        Racism

           Sexism

                                        homophobia

                       Religion

Strong family

Strong roots

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree

Trees have roots deep in the land

A well worn mantra

Here I stand

Rebellion is a gift for the young

And a curse for the old

A gift for an apple

And a gift for the bold

For can’t you see

Religion is fixed

Faith is free
