Poem: Sorry means you won't do it again

Issue 

We come here today to say we're sorry
For the injustice done
We reach out our hands to hold you
We grieve as one
But we won't leave it there cos it wouldn't be fair
We've just begun

Eddie Mabo was a man from an island
And his skin was black
And when the time came for him to go home
They told him "you're not going back"
but he didn't leave it there cos it didn't seem fair
And his case was won

Mulrunji was a man he was singing
And his skin was black
And his people still wait for justice
for that police attack
but they won't leave it there cos it wouldn't be fair
til justice is won

TJ was a boy he was riding
And his skin was black
And another police inquiry
Won't bring him back
But we won't leave it there, to show that we care
We'll fight as one

You stood there that day said you were sorry
And you sounded strong
But you continue the same injustices
It's you who's wrong
so together, hand in hand
for our life and for our land
our fight lives on
