Death Cast A Shadow

Poem By RONALD K SSEKAJJA

Death caught me, past lines fading
And I met the eyes of my maker
And tell you what, it's quite chilling
Living past lines of the quiet seeker
And hold my heart cold
I now know what men behold
When nothing is left but their awaiting death

Death cast a shadow and the veil covers my eyes
That while men sojourn on this troubled earth
We will still see none but the bleeding skies
Our hearts faints for lack of hope after birth
And with the sword raised up as such
We all breathed our last in a sigh

For troubled is life and even when I breath
I know I am dead to it all and with joy I say it in a sigh

Silence

The silence was there
And she held it higher
And we all watched the space
To know, and face

The Eagle

The eagle flew by my head
And I know Every tide has it's ebb
And this thought is there
To heckle

I Held The Wire

So shall i tell her of the time
The glorious moment of the rhyme
In that same day i held the wire
She, with such a chance borrowed the fire

So For Once

Well, light is for bright
When the mighty can't write
For what pun is in the sun
When noon can't great dawn

They Look Down On Us

The sun did surely cross the mantel
And every thing having been held
None of us could break the wall
And this bliss being such bitter made

Travel With Me

Travel with me pretty maiden
That skies may speak our mother-tongue
Hold my hand a little,
For when men close their eyes
