Pacific Games: one people, one spirit, our games


An entry in the Crocodile Prize
Kina Securities Award for Poetry

Here we gather
both to compete
and to share the weather
both to unite
and to share our cultures

Here we are, where else should we be
we are the Pacific dream
we adapt the tropics, we adapt the temperate
diverse are we no matter how specific
we've come because we are the best

From the rawest talent
to the stardom athlete
in the pool or on the field
for bronze or for gold
it doesn't matter, we merge as one

Conquer the finish lines, there is no win, no lose
appreciate dirt and sweat as achievement
let us comfort our exhaust, be the shoulder
let discipline and respect be our wheels
display all potentials, invest all efforts

Let our noise be heard
sound the cries of victory
sound the cries of defeat
let the world hear us
let the world see us

Let us blaze the Pacific spirit
for the whole world must know
that we are one people
the Pacific people
Our Pacific Games

May God bless us all...
