I looked across the dusty plane as my eyes followed the eight foot fences topped with barbed wire My heart sank as I remembered my family I left at the place the men in uniforms called Christmas Island whilst the warmth of my tears flooded my cheeks inevitably I was quickly woken from my reminiscent gaze by the buzzing of the gates when the guards confirmed that our debilitated bus was entering with authorities I looked around at the violent congregations of multicultural men wondering what I was about to walk into A man in straight black uniform with a tool belt on filled with what seemed to be defense weapons lead me to a dormitory He carelessly pried the door open with a metal bar breaking the door frame in the process and then left as though it was a mediocre procedure in this guarded reformatory I looked around the dismantled vandalised chamber as my eyes drew to the three lifeless faces filled with despair sitting on what seemed to be our beds strips of foam on the cold concrete floor with one thin flannelette sheet I stood in awe at the state of the desolate bedroom how was this considered a legal refuge center I cringed at the thought of my family sleeping in a state like this Something had to be done The other men in the dormitory showed me around the detention center telling me that they wanted to know how things got the way they are now My angst and animosity grew with each room I looked at I saw brutal disputes break out between guards and other asylum seekers and nobody flinched It was such a prevalent situation that it wasnt even considered an area of concern anymore The rhythmic droning chant of protesters rung in my ears as I made my way down the length of the eight foot fences NO CRIME TO SEEK ASYLUM FREE THE REFUGEES
