It's Now

Poem By RONALD K SSEKAJJA

I find petals past lining prints
And I call it fine for awareness's hints
And we travel, by night and by day
And when our hope fades what shall we say?
When we wake to the reality
That all that we believed in was vanity
And that we can no longer print that certainty
That heart melt for lack of clarity
What is it then my fretting friend?
When what I can say in your heart can't descend

We will say it no more, hide no more and meet no more
But if we say such things so, recite them so, spell them so
Will our children find the courage to stand and live?
Or they will only toil to find a way to survive
We decide now, we fight now, we revive the spirit now
For the time to change the writing on the wall is now

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
