    THE CULTURE SOLD

    one day you will want it back,
    or at least got nostalgic about it.

    it wont be there
    it wont be there

    you will go to history books
    it wont be there

    it will not be reasonable
    but there you are, you will have
    everyone's freedom and not your own

    to go back to. you will have surveillance
    and no home. you will have diversity

    and nothing familiar: you will have a country
    of abstraction, and idea of everyone

    and nothing. you will have landscape
    that cries for a style
    of what you were, and you will stutter
    and offer it freedoms, like the wind.

    as you go like a banshee from one myth to anther.
    you will be hungry for someone like yourself,
    as you touch the braille of others.

    and feel the hot blood
    surge to your eyes, blind with everything

    and ask to show your to the sky
    and be recognized


    Ok, so this is a for my poetry test, im suppose to write the 2 themes of the poem
    could some one offer some help?
    im thinking freedom or regret , but i do not have strong support for them

    I guess you write another poem to get 2 themes. I'm not the expert of the poems.

    OK, leetcakes, the two themes of the poem 'The Culture Sold' are nostalgia and familiarity because the author misses how it was before being with people of his kind. My sister helped me for that poem. Hope this helps you...

    More input? Here's the answers:

    When he says it can't be found anywhere, it means only he knows what it's about, specifically his culture. He longs for people of the same culture, because he is alone in a diverse community.

    That's the answer for you, leetcakes.
