Prayer for the Dead
by Toni Truesdale
To all those conquered bones,
With the painful solitude of lone closed eyes.
It’s not just the victim that dies.
Did gold, silver and slaves
Make this destiny just?
Or did fate rape those women in lust?
Can they ‘save’ the souls
To make it just?
Or did Manifest greed burn the cross in the night?
Would it not be right,
To look back at 500 years;
And say to those dead
That we finally see their tears?
And to each that has suffered
Say a prayer for peace;
For the sake of the future
And the hope of release;
From that continuing cycle
Of servant of master...

Remember the sacrifices and strength,
The ancestors are the
Foundation of this country.
The peacemakers and the warriors that fought to preserve,
The mothers who have been the teachers of language and culture.
We all give thanks to them that came before
To ensure the Nations are still here,
The children of this generation will help save the world.
