Circle #acholi

History is made this day

the elders of the family join

we are entreated to take seats

humbly wives sit on mats

Honor is given this day

decision of ancestral lands

 children to thrive and play

hold hope in our hands

Strong, grace in a man’s eyes

he bows his head

hearts are honest, open

promise for a new day

Tears reach my eyes

a lesson for our world’s leaders

a home for lonely children

thanks were given this day
