Students at Calvary Primary School in Uganda have been writing about issues in their community. Gift, a primary 7 student, wrote this poem about HIV/AIDS.
People, People, People,
What can we do?
Where can we run to and hide from
AIDS AIDS!!! AIDS!!! AIDS!!!
Aids is a killer disease
Killing Young and Old
Rich and Poor
Learnt and Unlearnt.
Who is safe with you AIDS?
Our dear ones are taken by surprise
Children tremble at your sight
The whole world is watching you in terror
No one has an answer
Run, control your behavior and shame AIDS.
Inform others about AIDS
Mothers and Fathers, watch out!
My brothers and sisters let us run away
For our lives
Try your best to avoid AIDS
Save yourself and save others.
