THE SILENT SCREAM OF YOUR PEOPLE
They are shouting! Do you hear them? They are crying! Do you see them! They are dying! Do you make an effort to help? You said you will kill poverty, but every day people was killed because of starvation, while you’re simply sitting, eating with a lot of foods on your table. You said you will provide them shelter, but every day there are peasants sleeping on the streets, while you’re sleeping in your soft and comfortable bed with air-condition and good atmosphere. You said you will give education to the poor, but as I was walking on my way in our school, I saw many children with no slippers begging for food and water to ease their hungryness and thirst while you have your highest degree on your education and taking graduate studies. You said you will give more jobs and opportunities to the poor but why many people with knowledge and skills want to work but still unemployed because there is no job to be offer. Many people are still suffering abroad because they know that when they work here, it will not be enough to sustain their family needs, while you have your power and position in the government but your hands are still short and closed to help all your people who barely needed you right now. You said you will give financial assistance to the health of your ill people, but many of them died in the hospital with debt on their grave. While when you’re sick there is special treatment in you because you have your money to enter in any private hospital you wanted. You said you will stop criminality but you didn’t realize that poverty is the main reason of all this crimes. Robbery and theft!? Rape and abuse!? Pushing and using drugs!? The poor & uneducated person are easily caught and deceive in doing these crimes. Don’t you know that many innocent was sentenced on jail for the crimes they do not make, but they can’t defend themselves because they do not have money to protect their selves, because they are poor? They are the voiceless victim in the prison, do you care or are you care for yourself? Do you want to look bigger than what I see, do you ever see them in their hidden spot! Those rich and powerful criminals! The manipulator of the innocence of poor, the true parasite of this nation! The person who uses their money to become more powerful. Do you see them? Or are you of them? Your people are crying, don’t you want to wipe out their tears. Your people are begging, don’t you want to help them overcome their struggles. Poor also need justice and equality, don’t you want to be fair and not bias to their cry. Oh! Leaders of this nation, wake up from your deep sleep! Your people are screaming but your ears are covered with lies and your eyes are blind folded with your selfishness. I am pleading! Please open your ears, so that you will see what I see, and please uncover your ears so you may also hear what I hear. I can’t STOP POVERTY.. But YOU…LEADERS OF THIS NATION..YOU CAN STOP IT IF YOU WILL OPEN YOUR HEART. I’m dreaming that one day, their will be no more nightmare to those people who sees tomorrow as another burden in their life, nor people with sleepless day and night who’s afraid of dying when they take a nap even just a seconds. To all corrupt people of this government, I’m not here to quarrel but to be the voice of my nation. We entrusted our hope in your hand so please…help us, to stop this destitution before it will be too late. Please wake up, not tomorrow but today!
