The Empathy Poems project is designed to raise awareness about the plight of asylum seekers and refugees.

For those who come across the sea

Beneath our radiant Southern Cross
We’ll toil with hearts and hands
To make this Commonwealth of ours
Renowned of all the lands.

For those who come across the sea
Do you think we really care?
We’ll put you in an island cell
And pretend that you’re not there.

Our boundless plains are not for you,
And we’re not going to share.


Shore of Refuge

I see his blood
