SpineOut : April - May 2017
Savani, Age 16 Rossmoyne Senior High School Rossmoyne WA poetry 'tis our fight Many eons ago, A battle fought in history, Not one single battle, But many victories and losses. All of which have shaped humanity. The days of today And the days of tomorrow Remain within our hands, I and many others Want us safe, As well as acknowledging the many that fought before us. 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, 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? The rich tapestries of history Are created everyday, Kept clean by the few that know The value of the past.
