IDENTITY

Educate yourself enough

So you may understand

The ways of other people

But not too much

That you may lose

Your understanding

Of your own

Try things palagi

Not so you may become palagi

But so may see the value

Of things Samoan

Learn to speak Samoan

not so you may sound Samoan

but so you may

feel the essence

of being Samoan
