Hey everyone that follows this page, poetribe are moving through phases and would love to keep playing together and experimenting but haven't had that opportunity in a very long time but are focusing on individual pursuits so please continue to support and follow our journeys in becoming artists who are still learning and growing always.
There have been many barriers to doing the work we wanted to do and maintaining the relationships we made and strengthened during the last 5years and maybe we can be able to talk about it publicly but in the meantime please continue to follow Lorna and Eric as they keep kicking their own goals
just sharing some thoughts
Australian redneck racists
Get back on your convict slave ships
We don't need you no more
Lets face it.....
I've been dreaming of a land before time
I've been needing a lil place I can call mine
I've been fading
Sinking into my cemented boots
I'm out of line
How do I change it ?
Where can I feel weightless ?
Break even all that you made us.....
The balance was there to save us
Are we so complacent to beg for a revolution,
But never wanna make any changes ?
Tweaking our views from our mirrors
Checking blind spots
Did you miss the plot?
It was stolen...
What wealth has your mind got?
When your head remains in the gutter
A crime spot
Where their masters
Keep them lines locked
Punching in time sheets
A record of all the jobs
They never got....
I found it hard to speak
Thinking of TJ, David, Elijah, Miss Dhu and Patrick
Still I dream on
Because this life is nothing that I wanna rely on
No shoulder to cry on
But a sista with a voice
That make ya wanna shine on
The strength of my blood
My ancestors learned to swim
While the rest of the 'evolving' word
Escaped the flood
Give all my time and live in love
My legs refuse to get tired of
So I watch the clouds above
Still no justice for David Gundy.
This is about something I have watched play out in many similar situations (not just poetry) over too many years. While it’s not about one specific person it do...es talk about a few things I’ve seen specific people do and things that I’ve experienced.
Appropriation happens in many different fields tho. And it sucks. So....
Anyways just thought I’d chuck something up..
We control the narrative otherwise it's just continuing colonialism.
Thank you for following our page and being patient while we pursue our individual creative paths.
After much growth and realisation we are having a yarn about the future of Poetribe and scheming as per usual.
While hanging out today we found some oldies but goodies and wanted to share.
So keep an eye out we will be posting links to our new Soundcloud account.
Poetribe are Black!!
I have just been confirmed as 1 of 12 Indigenous models to go to São Paulo, Brazil and walk the catwalk of fashion week 2017, problem is no 💰 so ...I'm asking everyone for help! Im challenging you all to donate $10 to this amazing project. Myself, Terri Creative Services & Management and the Circles Project are working so hard to get us there. Help us challenge the perceptions that others hold. When we represent we represent ancient bloodlines with the strength and beauty of our people. We walk with pride help us make our mark on the international stage!
C-mon you mob I love supporting projects and individuals that I am lucky enough to be exposed to on a daily basis. Anyone who knows me will know that I come from big black families connected to many communities and if it wasn't for the support of my mob I wouldn't have the drive to do what I do This is a once in a life time opportunity that we can't miss out on. Please help get us to São Paulo, Brazil for FASHION WEEK 2017!! Repost, like and share my little fundraising video that was filmed on my phone in my Aunties laundry. Find our gofundme page and donate what you can.

our piece 'Cell' was inspired by Henrietta Lacks and the ongoing experimentation of our bodies.
RESPECT to the family and my sister girl Nene Ali for sharing.
Poetribe's Lorna has been busy as well with various projects including "Only Built for Koori Linx" by Provocalz and a huge collective of black artists, probably the best collaborative black CD you will find. Click on the link, check it out for yourself.....
