    The destruction of artifacts and monuments

    Cannot be taken on face value

    As a war against terror

    Great nations don't just grow up overnight

    Nor do rivers reverse the course of history

    To profit meddling imperialists

    Our Euphrates runs deep

    Deep as the cradle of civilization ~

    It shall rise again...

    Overflowing the want of wet babies

    Who dare to whine over a freedom yet learned

    This nation often forgets that it is actually young... You know how inexperience often leads you to think that you know everything, when actually you have much to learn. Anywho, that's what this piece made me think of. Flow on with the knowledge brotha.

    This country is the teenager on the world stage, and we have a lot of growing up to do - painful growing. You illustrated this well, brothah.
