An Aboriginal Place

Please do not walk away, walk my way
See the colour of my life
Wander with me through my paradise
Of ant hills and bright ochres rife

I’m a proud native of this land, all this red sand
See the life that abounds
It’s bigger than the white fella vision
A multitude of silence and sounds

I offer this dreamtime menagerie, it’s yours for free
See where the aboriginal spirits ride
A sacred place a naked race a well etched face
Of true indigenous pride
