You Don’t Know Me #Uganda #abuse#women #opportunities

But I have a name

I had to hide it

under guilt and shame

my father first

than another

the men in the village

more than trouble

i dont have a child

but most of us do

my life starts over

it’s what i choose

skills and school

than add a trade

reset my life

  1. This is a thoughtful poem that speaks the truth, Leslie. I like how you shone a light on women in Uganda and how challenging their lives are over there. It is unfortunate how women there are boxed into certain roles and have to hide their capabilities, and opportunities to improve on themselves are scarce. Thank you for sharing this. Hope you are doing well over there. Take care.
