Poetry: Day 26

We should be humble, not proud
To be Australian

How different would this country be
If we valued humility
Instead of pride?

To acknowledge our luck
And to acknowledge that
It’s none of our doing

We just turned up here
Born into it
Victims of circumstance

So easily we could have been
Helpless babies
Born in war-torn lands

Do we really dare take credit for who we are?
Lucky, random accidents

Chaos threw us here onto this dirt

Lucky atoms
Lucky electrons
Spinning
Our stories
Of who we think we are
