White Hills of Regret

by Robbi Skaera

Because in the past, we fought,
And when we won, we were right
We did not apologise to historical texts,
we stood up for ourselves back then,
Under White Hills,
Under the Snow.

Because back then, we didn't need to answer
Questions of invasion, willing or otherwise
Consent was an issue back then,
We took ourselves seriously,
Under White Hills,
Under the Snow.

Once upon a time my people spoke with pride
of our achievements,
Times which cannot be erased.

Because there was a time when we were not ashamed
Of our victories, our failures
Because there was a time when we were right,
and we did not need to constantly apologise.
Once upon a time, a long time ago,
Under White Hills,
Under the Snow.
