Historians of all ages agree that the colonization Construed the violation of human rights- While the New World saw the racism, Massacres, starvation, and the "Indian fights"! Such practices today, known as the ethnic cleansing And genocide, are still going on- And seem appalling 'cause subjugation Was legally sanctioned from dusk until dawn!
As per indigenous law, indigenous interests Can hold native title with restrictive clause- While the law introduced by Euro immigrants Obscures native title via excuses and flaws! Indigenous peoples were truly marginalized Without allowing them any turn around time- By dominant descendents of Europeans Who valued indigenous lives with nickel or dime!
The harshness of this fallacy caused some people To disappear or become victims of race- And still feel separation from their lands While allowing sadness to permeate global face! Indigenous peoples, forcibly separated from their heritage, Continue to tackle the fears- Of poverty and marginalization, loss of culture And language, followed by trail of tears!
Social problems like alcoholism and suicide Are creeping in to suppress the hidden pain- Among the indigenous peoples, lying below The social structures, and without any gain! Threatening from political upheavals and Civil wars are creating tantrums in their mind- While modern conservation policies protect the animals, But keep these humans behind!
Being driven out of homeland, they became unable To lead life in their traditional way- And facing hardship with assimilation While modern world is not fast enough to sway! Language, religion or cultural beliefs of theirs Are object of ridicule and found in the tale- While the values, inherent to their knowledge, Is unrecognized and going down to hell!
To curb down discrimination against them, My pen is scribbling under moonlit night- And vows to draw global attention To their problems before they become out-of-sight! I appeal to the "dominant community" To embrace them with passions and heartfelt love- And allow them to live as fabric of global humanity With blessings from the Lord above!
Well, as I conclude with my thoughts, I can view a glittering star on the horizon now- And hear a whisper from the United Nations That stands ready with its' priority vow! The progress towards reconciliation is a necessity To enforce the rules without a flaw- While violators of human rights must be punished To show that no one is above the law!!
