Good Demonstrators - Poem by maria sudibyo

(for all demonstrator, please read this)

not follower, but educated
not destroy, but change
not breaking the gate, but building the door
not spoiled, but fresh spirit
not demanding, but giving
not violence, but creative plan
not waiting, but being patience
not young, but future
not burn the tire, but clean the road
not attack, but negotiate
not argue, but prove first
not radical, but smart freedom
not anger, but passion
not block the street, but make a bridge
not force the will, but listen
not annoy public, but help them
not terror, but peace
not throw the stone, but give a flower
not shout, but sing
not provoked, but control emotion
not insult, but satire
not conqueror, but harmony
