"Tag! You're 'It!'"

It is not alive

But it can die

Yet it can't seem to survive.


It is not strong

But it can hold on

Yet it can't seem to be wrong.


It is not kept

But it can be handicapped

Yet it can't seem to be trapped.


It is not unsaid

But it can be mislead

Yet it can't seem to be misread.


What is "it"?

This poem is about: 
My community
My country
Our world
