SHE WATCHED! Stolen Generation!

She watched through her heart of pain
as the children cried
She watched the nightmares unfold
as abuse was ripe
She watch the segregation of the two,the dark and light,
as they tried to wipe out the colour
She watched darkness draw near
as the children began to cry
She watched the pain in their eyes
and they silently begged to be saved
She watched them treated like dogs
as food was thrown on the floor
She watched as they scampered like mice
as there would be no more!
She watched the hatred in their faces
as they beat the child
She watched through huge glass doors
and wished they would break
She watched them pin her arms behind a chair
as food was shoved in her throat
as they forced her to eat their food
She watched them come for her accross the hall
and cary her by her ears
She watched the pain in their eyes
as they pleaded for someone to help
but the cries went unheard
She watched her heart destroy
as the injustice went untold
SHE WATCHED!

SHE WATCHED! Stolen Generation!

Artist's Description

This is about the experience of being in the homes with the stolen generation, as DOCS and the Australian Government were taking children by the thousands away from their families for no apparent reason… Australian history is very vaige when it comes to ABORIGINAL HISTORY, we as a race know it was a GENOCIDE!
This is my experience, this is what I watched and endured, there is more, but that is another STORY to tell … This took place 1973- 1974
