Down This Road I Walk

Written by Ssesanga Dennis Ernest

 

Down this road I walk,

Like a lone soldier but no lone soldier

For besides and behind me are veterans

That have set me to tread down this road

With great inspiration not forgetting

The fore fathers and mothers

That traced this road

That I may be able to walk

In it even in the dark.

 

The credit I relay

Is to those unsung heroes

That taught me how to read

And those that taught my teachers to read

The passion they possessed

Even when they had no clear knowledge

Of the future down the road they walked

 

So down this road I walk

I am grateful for them that sent them

I mean the teachers to become teachers

Those fore fathers and mothers

That believed in an educated generation

And wished their sons and daughters

To become teachers down that road they walked

Down this road I walk, I am grateful.
