Yes, me I lost my way.

I no longer know how life tastes.

I don’t remember how good appears.

The world has played on me.

The people I called friends laughed at me when I lost everything.


I’ve lost my way because you have left me far away, far behind.

The promise was that the one who gets better would give a hand to the one still struggling.

It was all a lie.

I’ve been used.

I’ve been dumped.


That’s why am wandering aimlessly.

Like a drunkard’s chicken, not sure of tomorrow.

Trusting I trusted you but instead reaped a curse.

My tears boil within my eyes like the hot springs of Kabaale , My heart enraged and my face folded,  it’s the time I cry for.

All that time yet I created an enemy to wage.


Enlighten my path.

Why me? Friends.

I can’t find the way of life.

It dark here.

People that we stay with are bad.

They are blood suckers.


They don’t want me to succeed.

They will tell all the bad things I did to them, but I used to be a darling.

They won’t tell you how I helped them.

They won’t tell you how I gave up everything for them to be able to have food on the table.


Someone hold my hand.

Take me by the hand, show me the way.

Re Someone: I don’t have any body in mind, I just wrote to God, I actually wanted to write that ‘God hold my hand’ but I decided to leave it like that.

Jabongi Micheal was born in 1989 and grew up in a Kampala slum called Kamwokya in Uganda, a place where most of the children couldn't afford education and most of his age mates became law breakers and girls at an early age resorted to prostitution. He went on to study in a public school and completed high school but his parents couldn't afford to pay for him to go to university. In 2013, he was one of the founders of Oasis of Life Destiny Church in a slum called Namuwongo. In 2015 he did a Certificate in Bible teaching at Doers Of The Word Bible Institute. He got a degree at Gate Breakers Bible School and in 2021 went on to pastor at Global Evangelical Community Church. He has a passion for teaching writing but is challenged with the level of illiteracy in the community where he lives. A lot of parents can't afford to pay school fees for their children and more can't afford a meal a day. He strongly believes that in the near future he will help them go to school and start up orphanages and elderly homes. His passion for the Word has guided him to write scripts, plays and poems.
