A Beautiful Mind - Poem and Political Commentary on Aboriginal Education (Australia)

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I'm an ESL teacher in Australia. I currently work at a 100% indigenous boarding school in Alice Springs. I've experienced first hand the issues Australia's indigenous youth experience in assimilating due to their population's subscription to victimhood mentality (among other causes). Recently I've started a blog as a method of poetic and political procrastination while I write my first novel in my spare time. I recently saw Stefan's "White Guilt" speech on Youtube, it spoke deeply to me about my own experiences. BEFORE I saw his speech I had written a poem about censorship, the feeling of white guilt that prevents us from criticising ancient cultures and how the lack of dialogue effects my students. I hope you like it. I would post it here but I'm not sure that all my formatting preferences are supported on this site (I like to make my poem's visual, placement is intentional).

Feel free to comment on my poetic technique. You may gather what ideas I value from reading some of my other poems.
