How do they choose?
What stories to tell
And what stories not to
They say they want to be objective and unbiased
But I don't think it's true
If it is
They why would they get to choose?
We use facts to prove what we're saying is true
What makes me different from you is perspective
But couldn't we use facts to make it seem
That our perspective is true?
I don't think the study of History
Is unbiased or objective
How can it be
When we get to choose
What stories live on through time
And which ones get forgotten.
What stories would you tell?
Be a historian
A/N: So i am a history major in college and one of my requirements for my major is that i have to take a history seminar class which is the study of history itself. I was working on the reading assignment for this class and this idea came to me, and that fellow historians is how this poem was born. Anyways enough of my rambling review and favorite! Thanks guys!
