A call For the Sudanese Children

Please forgive the typo in the cover of my book. Yeah, not good. The book is on my blog and Wattpad. Not all the poems are on here. It’s difficult to give away your heard earned money and harder still for me to ask. But I need to ask for these children who can’t ask you themselves. Here are 7 facts about the war that leads to why you should therefore…

To the child refugees of South Sudan
To all refugees
To my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ

1.They are children

And that makes it everyone’s problem. Child poverty, child refugess, child soldiers, these all exists because of the effect and influence adults have over the world and the world that children lives in. Make this world a better place. Leave this world better than when you had first arrived and can take as little as giving 2 dollars.

2.Because the fight is between adults

And the children are in the thick of it.

3. It is our social responsibility to help cater for the children of the world. All of these children are our children.

Surely, the “every man for himself” only applies to the bill and mortgage paying adult who’s living from paycheck to paycheck. But this doesn’t apply to children because they don’t live in a cash world, because they’re too young to work. Isn’t this therefore, our responsibility, our burden, our duty and our problem?

4. They need us and yes, it’s a matter of life and death

It hurts me to think about how much better the world would’ve been if we had started helping them 5 years ago, since the beginning of the war. Maybe then, we wouldn’t have so many refugees, over half are children.

The thing is, I know it hurts to part away with money especially to give to people who you’ve never met, and don’t know. But the truth is, they rely on people like us, and on charities like World Vision.

I wrote this book, I am fundraising because I acknowledge that it’s a matter of life and death.

Why should you care?

Maybe you don’t have a reason to.

But you know what?

It matters to them that you do.

Note: My fundraising ends tomorrow, but you can donate directly to World Vision at any time.

 

 

The ones who have died

My heart is in pain,
Heavy weighing like an anchor
When I think of these children whom I do not know
Stuck in a war between adults
Yearning for their family back,
For peace back
And who am I to write about this and their sorrows?
For I do not know them and I can’t help.

Praise be those who has suffered and entered
The mouth of death
The shallow grave of defeat and loss,
Who have risked their lives so that their children may live,
The children whom have died in this insensible war
Makes me think of what we could’ve done in these five years

Don’t worry, for it will be over soon,
And you can always have a new home in a different place,
Don’t long for the old,
Reach for something new,
Something good and you will find it
Reaching back for you too.

Fundraising dinner

For several months, I’ve been fundraising for the Sudanese child refugees. I haven’t been doing a good job of it thought because it’s super embarrassing to ask people for money. I did manage to fundraise more than $100 but that’s only because of my very generous sponsor. Since my fundraise ends on the last day of September, 2018, I thought of hosting a fundraise dinner. These are the pictures. More info on the way. This is my last, “Hurrah”, my final effort in raising more money for these poor children, stuck between a senseless war.

It’s not too late to donate. Please do, as soon as possible if you feel a stirring in your heart, or inclined to give even just a little bit.

 

Thank you 🙂

 

President of Sudan

A limerick…

There once was a man in Sudan
Who fought a war not yet done
It was between his vice president who wanted power
Nobody could’ve ended the war sooner

But when it is over there’ll be fun
Although for me, I think I’ll stay in Ugan!

*note: Ugan=Uganda

No regrets

I have no regrets in this life because
Why worry about the past? It is useless.
Regretting anything would be a loss
Although the Let Go Life is not Careless

My past is haunted with pain and regret
That is if I were were to regret my past
But those unforgiving makes me so mad
My mistakes are gone, done and will not last

The truth is that I refuse to remorse
The past is a part of me, I won’t forget
But that is okay because I’ve changed course,
I’ve a good life, content, with no regrets

Ladies and gentlemen, that is the truth
Happy means content, you don’t need a sleuth.

A small gift

“A small donation can change a child’s life.”

Trying to think of a clever line that can express
How I truly feel
About the present you’ve given me, with your
Note about how it’s something small but to a
Kid like me, means the world. Why,
You might ask, does it matter so much? It’s because of the power
Of words, the flow of ink on paper as I express my
Undying gratitude to you.

From the bottom
Of my heart, I say that you have given me a
Reminder that I’m loved no matter how cruel the world is.

That there is always
Hope as long as I keep believing till the
End of my days.

Precious is this gift you’ve given me and
Everyday I’ll cherish this even after there’s
Nothing else to say.
