Treasure Island

Brian Bwesigye

(7th, November,1987 / Kabale, Uganda)

Lend a Hand


Think about it this way
People are killed every hour that clocks
Every day that passes by, blood is shed
Dear ones sob, weep and become vulnerable
For the loss of their loved ones
But never to see them again
Unfortunate kids on the streets
Struggle to get what to eat and where to sleep
But all in vain

And the end result is death
Let us join hands and give them a chance to live
For they deserve better
If you have what to give
Please give it to them when you are still alive
So that you can see the joy and happiness you bring to others

Don’t wait to die so that you can leave it to them
Because you won’t see that joy you created in their lives.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
