Treasure Island

Caleb Tukahiirwa

(03-04-1990 / kisiizi)

He was proud


He hears the sounds and feels the pain
Never been so out of himself like he is now,
He’s lost track of his life so now just fights,
He goes on, bravely like he can win all battles
With a thought that some day it will return
Return to him; let him feel like he always did
The voice, the sound that tickled his ears
The smile that always showed his day white
And with it he would face all that came his way.

He thought he would be better, without it
Felt strong and wanted the glory for himself
Now he is going down, slowly his dying,
The choices are always made but they cost us,
Though we decide to go on no matter what;
So as he did but he knew not what he had lost,
A friend, brother, he had lost more than life
He had lost the reason for his living a living
Lost his life’s greatest purpose for being
The love, peace, care of God, he had lost faith

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
