30.            ADVOCACY WORKSHOP

Our own voices has been silent for to long
While others who care sang our song
Yet we ourselves knows best what is wrong
And it is for our voices the others long.
We must face our weakness
Of being those which are voiceless.
We must face our weakness
Of being those that think less.
We are sensitive and sensible people,
Extraordinary people and guardians of reality
From which we became the experts
In our experience of those dark extracts.
For this reason must we become responsible
Not only for our own destiny
But for all of humanity.
We are the gatekeepers of human evolution
Of intelligence and reason
From which Man has evolved.
Therefore must we lead and speak up
Not only in voice but in constructive action
Of advocacy to make space for ourselves.
