We have been forcefully silenced through life,
Experiencing countless years of strife.
Our beloved cultures lost, never to be seen again,
Colonisation is an invisible pain.

They chased our blood, we lived in fear,
Barely had time to shed a tear.
Disease spread rapidly across our land,
Over the deserts, freedom slipped from our hands.

Fighting with spears against cannons and guns,
Washed from our culture, taken from our sons.
We have been lost, for too many decades,
Separated by insurmountable barricades.
