Before The Dreaming Ends

Sat, 05/08/2021 - 16:04 -- Jawkson

Kids not born with a syndrome,

could still inherent trauma 

A whole people over four 

generations, treated like lower fauna 


Families breaking down

and separating,

nobody has any room 

for maintaining 

the culture 


Colonization’s consequences

have never been spare

Believers of The Dreaming

facing many a nightmare 


Aboriginal dreaming frolic,

it’s a crying shame when

the world sees alcoholics 

out of them 


Communities are smaller,

the trouble getting fiercer 

An elder spreads wisdom

but nobody can hear her


Lack of identity, education, and cohesion, 

Up crime and suffering trends

A fading culture must be helped

before The Dreaming ends.
