Timor Leste

Four intense days

How can I make sense of all

That I experienced?

In essence, as always, it is

About people.


Bureaucracy changes face

But its bizarre logic is familiar.

Young babies still reach out

And grab whatever they can

With all their might.


People aspire

People experience disappointment

People are frustrated

People hope



Skin colour

‘Level of development’

are unimportant.







These are central, as always


“You do justice where your feet are”

A wise man said


Where are your feet?

How are you acting for justice?
