My History

How racist can my history be
Why would a nation subjugate
And now I wander feeling free
The privilege exercised innate
Apologise for doings past
Will Europeans make amends
The hurt into this present lasts
No doubt the system still offends
Imperial my heritage
Through socialism seek to change
Equality’s imperative
Those assets must be rearranged
The wind of change it blows with force
The future has a different course
