I stand on this land And hold out my hand I ask you to see The real me I'm funny and smart And I love art I'm kind and cool And I love this school My teachers are great And I'm a good mate I'm just like you I have fun too But can you see the real me? I'm a proud Aborigine.
Racheal explains how this poem came about:
"I wrote for one of my daughters to read in front of the school at an assembly to acknowledge NAIDOC Week. The inspiration for this poem came from my 9-year-old daughter who has been teased at school about who she is."
