I Will Die Young

Poem By RONALD K SSEKAJJA

For a country denoted with anarchy
For a soul tormented and headache
For time that fry by
For the tears we cant hold and cry
I will die young

And so when its painted in the face of your loved one
When you can not spell it but its clear
When the falling dew holds your eye lids
And the birds whistle it clearly in your tormented soul
It’s clear to all you my dear
I will die young

Why then hold me so
Ever tightening like fastening screws
And so I spell it poetically
For the Son I hold and the poetry I try
I will do all I can while I can
For a part of me tell me bluntly
I will die young
From it all that gives pleasure
Looking at how things are going

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
