Memories Of The War

Poem By RONALD K SSEKAJJA

Memories of the war

When they came to us we stood
For we were the men meant to stand
And though in the deepest of our hearts bosom
Fear has found a place and worry had detonated its boom
But we held our shield and with our hands clenching the sword
We moved forward and even when it was raining so hard
We had nothing per say, except for one; God

And one by one we dropped, with strong such enemies
Our hands shook, our hearts beating faster, we couldn't hold our tummies
But we knew one thing it had to be done
We would not settle for less it had to be victory or none
Few as we were we sang our song
"We will overcome, we will overcome someday"
And we faced our fears and nothing was wrong
And surely we can live to sing our victory song since that day

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
