Poetry TIS OUR FIGHT Savani, Age 16 Rossmoyne Senior High School Rossmoyne WA Many eons ago, A battle fought in history, Not one single battle, The days of today And the days of tomorrow Remain within our hands, I and many others Want us safe, Here we stand, On this aged soil, On this land that has travelled so far, On this blood of survivors and casualties. Here we rise, To a new sky, A new sea of minds, Language, Ideas And emotions. Today is our day, But many victories and losses. All of which have shaped humanity. The battles fought, Our freedom lasts throughout the world. Yet, our world has too much; We aren’t grateful To the many that fought To help our generation survive. If history was different, Where would we all be? If people didn’t have enough determination, Where would we all be? As well as acknowledging the many that fought before us. The rich tapestries of history Are created everyday, Kept clean by the few that know The value of the past.
