Australia! When?


When will you emerge

from your sleepy self-doubt and

be a nation in the world without

apology, standing on conviction, not

giving ground because of fear, and being

who you are: this honoured place of welcome,

a home away from home, lifting everyone

up so we can all stand tall, believing

in the freedoms that not all nation enjoy,

and finding uniqueness because of all

who bless our ancient, sacred shores.
