“Voice for the Voiceless” 

I should be glad to have a voice
My thoughts they can be heard.
I should be glad to have a voice
The ability of forming words

I should be glad to have a voice
Since out there some have none.
Their cry for help is all ignored
They die one after one.

I should be glad to have a voice
And make the people listen,
To make them change of what is wrong
And do better for a difference.

I give my voiceless peers my hand
Their eyes are filled with fear.
I, with my voice, will raise awareness
The people need to hear.

I should be glad to have a voice
And let their thoughts be heard.
What they can’t say themselves for all
My mouth says word for word.

 

                                        By Duc My Tran,                                                                                                         inspired by James Aspey

 

James Aspey turned silent for a whole year in order to raise awareness of animal’s helplessness in the cruelty they have to face.
