Black Prejudice

Black Prejudice

Blacks can never love whites
Whites poisoned our hearts
And
Our children

Black childrens dreams shattered
By white greed

Bent minds and stolen children
Sexual abuse and slavery back then

We struggle with reality
Who are we?
We have no idea where we will call home next
And
With whom

Our pride is diminished by your white hatred

Where is our community of living?
Where is our death place?

Our Elders are beside themselves
And can only sell land for mining
Last power left for a warrior
Of
Gondwana

Sell the land and sell out
Sell out our black arses
For white wealth

We are unemployable in the mainstream
It seems

Where can we talk freely?
Where can we walk freely?
And
With whom

Who will listen to a black voice?
anymore

Everyone knows white Australia
Hates
Those that are different
Those that dare to claim their own land
After proving forty thousand years of title

Those that stand up with a black face
Are knocked down
Appeased only with words like sorry
Sorry for what white fella?
That your genocide is working?

The colour of one's skin or race is immaterial. Being born a worthy individual is what counts. An insightful piece of poetry, well articulated and nicely penned. Thanks for sharing Paul.
