Where, in relation to nature,  

do our children stand?  

They need us as priests,  

as pastors against poverty. 

The collar of the clergy needs to minister,  

to preach and to be revered deliverers  

of the message of prosperity for our offspring. 

We are important figures, 

the founders of movements,  

the ones who give care and protection,  

the ones who are the oldest and most respected,  

Partners to women  

and ready to admit that we live 

in relation to our community 

Naturally, we must be the originator  

of justice and truth for our community.  

Our ancestors assigned us this task.
