Crystal's Ancestral Poem

Being brown, Being Tongan

Have I never forgotton ?
Wearing black to a funeral,
Showing respect to my loved ones,
Learning and speaking our language,
Wearing black to a funeral,
Going church every sunday,
My ancestors your beautiful lives,
passed on has left my family in disbelief,
Sadness slowly zooms through all my emotions inside,
tears dripping, fists clenching, my head down low
A big loss, A piece of my heart has gone, such a heavy blow.

I am crystal fonua , I'm Tongan
I will say it because I’m proud
I love my ancestors I’ll say it out loud!
