The Cry of the Victims Printable Version PRINTABLE VERSION
by Stephen N. Asek, Cameroon Jul 25, 2006
Child & Youth Rights   Poetry


They are crying and saying
We have HIV/AIDS
Please hug us
Please eat with us
Please think of the future

Oh! How we feel healed!
Please sleep, on one bed with us.
Let’s eat like friends. In one bowl?
Yes! With the same plate.
Please visit us
Please think of the future

Don’t you get our message?
We can make it clear again and for your sake.
You know, what we can do,
We all can do better.
Friends, be attentive and accept these words
That the years of your life may be many.
Yes! Incline your ear to wisdom;
Abstain, be faithful, fear God and protect your self.
Please think of the future

Please sit on the same chair with us.
Please attend the same school with us
Please drink from the same cup with us
We will not get you infected.
We want the message spread not the virus.
We need love, we need care, and we need a lasting medical response!
Please be part of our solution and not our problems
Each day, we all desire one thing, (For you to)
Get the truth and sell it not. AIDS is real.
The cry of the victims!
