Time to hear their Silenced Voices

Still water runs deep,

Time is now for hearing silenced voices

To echo in our souls,

To let the power of our truth prevail

on the storying of our land.


Our First Nations people managed to survive,

Their ancient foot trails perpetually

Inscribed on Country,

Their legacy flows continuously

In the lifeblood of Australia’s becoming.

No more game of symbolism,

Of saying ‘Sorry’ without repairing the damage

To the main artery of our consciousness,

Of keeping our Motherland alive,

Our Aboriginal brothers and sisters

Still wallow at the bottom of the well

Of our indifference.
