In a time when identities can lead to
tribalism and nationalism
my blood is not thicker than water.
I choose to be a world citizen
celebrating unity in diversity and
the full diversity of
all my cultural heritages.
World Unity Day
that’s a celebration worth hoping for.
Love you Mum and Dad
Queensland, Papua New Guinea,
Papua New Guinean Australia,
Oceania, France, England
and any other culture that wants to claim me.
