exposing old truths

words long hidden; on paper

colonial crimes – public

~

truths written in blood

of those that never came home

may their souls find peace

~

many documents

honouring survivors’ truths

but millions held back

indelibly imprinted

on hearts who read them

may minds be decolonized

may there be peace; love

~
