Poem title/HOPE
Hope is a feeling of expectation and desire
A desire for a certain event to happen and
Everyone has hope and we all hope for good things

Students have hope on their work
Farmers hope for bumper harvest
Even though they is drought
Politicians hope for winning elections
They desire and intend to work tirelessly
Business hope  for smooth business movement

Parents have hope for their children
No one wishes for her parent to be a n,anga or a thief
But everyone wishes for a child to a president or a doctor

Hope, hope , hope
We all hope and hope for good things
Hope brings confidence

DIANA MASANJARA/SEKE 1HIGH/15YEARS
POEM TITLE/THE HIDDEN ANSWER
Who is that girl?
Why is she crying”?
Does not anyone cares about her?
Why is nature cruel to her?
Who can help her?

Doesn’t she have parents?
Oh they are dead
She is an orphan
Doesn’t she has guardians?
Of course she have
Why is she crying?
She lives with a cruel uncle
He beats her with a beating stick
She works in the fields
From morning to evening
Why does the uncle so cruel to her?
She is only an innocent girl child

Does she go to school?
No she doesn’t
Oh why?
There is no money for school fees
I am seeking for an answer

GOERGINA JAMBWA/SEKE2HIGH/17YEARS
POEM TITLE/YOU LIBERATED MY SPIRIT
You liberated my spirit
You satisfy my soul
I rule myself today
My wishes are now fulfilled
You liberated my spirit

You liberated my spirit
Yesterday, I was not allowed to go school
I was instructed to be a sexual worker
But now I a m a teacher, a nurse, and an empowered girl
I now speak foreign languages like a bird
I help and assist children, so that they realize their dreams tomorrow
You liberated my spirit

Yesterday we stayed anxiously
When death was on our hands
But today we are rejoicing
We are free, we live together peacefully
You liberated us, you are a hero

I respect you,
Because you have brought tangible development in our lives
We will forever be grateful
Because you liberated us
You are a true liberator
You liberated my spirit

ELLEN TASHAYA/SEKE HIGH 1/16YEARS

POEM TITLE/I KNOW WHO IAM
I am a gift from the lord
With needs and wants
Different from others
Who knows what she wants

They are friends whose lips drip honey
I am aware of their discretions
I have managed to be alone
Than to be a member of ill company
I am prepared to face and overcome difficulties
Even if I have to stand alone

Some don’t know who they are
They don’t know what they want
But as for me I am different from others
I have a style of my own
My own looking
I have confidence in everything I do
I know who I am

I am empowered .
I have courage
I have focus on what I do
Some friends ca not mislead me
I know who I am
