Straighten your back and open your ears.
Because we need to state our fears.
To the stakeholders and policy makers, hear us out.
I believe we the youth can make a difference, no doubt.
For so long we haven’t been heard.
Our voices may come second or maybe even third.
We won’t be silenced or shushed any more.
We are the solution, we are the core.
And when it comes to drug prevention,
we dedicate all our efforts and attention.
So please give us the chance,
with our power we can flip the balance in a glance.
We still need your help and to stand with us,
to have the light and leave the dusk.
Drug use is life abuse,
but we believe with prevention, numbers can be reduced.
We trust your decisions,
but we need to be involved cause we share the same vision,
so would you help us with this?
To have our backs and help with the gaps and cracks,
to support and to escort
to teach and to help us reach.
Together we can make a real change,
and the roles we can exchange.
It may sound strange but there’s no harm with us given the stage.
To look with the real eyes on the field,
and the gaps we can reveal.
To work on them and we all together take an action.
To have a knowledge of the reactions,
with the right prevention programs, strategic plans.
And together hand in hand,
we can make a real change!
Cause you are the stem and we are the root,
together our work, we will always pursuit.
To watch our amazing leaves grow by years,
and our fears disappear.
So straighten your back and open your ears,
because we will achieve our dreams.
We believe together we can,
and we believe together we will.
