Dear Fellows, I have written this poem for stepping on the door of courage and confidence for valuing ourselves as being selected in VOF because of our voices and for presenting other suppressed voices. So, on behalf of them, I am saying the words of hope and happiness for change in our communities. Let us read and say to the world together that,

Every-time, when you feel alone and no one hears from you, Suddenly, despair conquers your mind, depression dismisses your hope, you feel the lost of your voice.

The oceans of sorrow and pain may gather in our eyes, And tears start raining on the mountains of your aspire, Let the rains drop, please never drop the pebble of hope from the mountain, Keep it up on the mountain, Stiffed or clenched in your fests, You will find way to your voice.

Do not say, where is my voice, Do not question, What about my voice, Because there is always a person, an inspiration, valuing your voice, Trust it, and be there all the time for, The Voices for Our Future.
