I am the child

That asked questions

Deemed too wild,

No whys and how's

Were allowed.

Over years and years

I tried, I tried.

Truth and tradition

In my parents’ home

Swam separate

Like oil and water.

Years passed and

Still I’m the scapegoat

Sent out into the desert.

Sadly, you are right about that... I see the West as an entity that over the past 500 years, has rewarded greed and psychopathic behaviour through creating an entire system of societal/economic and legal structures such that anyone who seeks to be fair and compassionate in their dealings with others, is defined as a loser who deserves to be taken advantage of. Other societies had their class of greedy, power-seeking exploiters, but their moral compass did not collapse such that viciousness is redefined as say, efficiency and then, is seen as acceptable and even appluaded by the majority.
