IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN LOVE by Nantume Bridget, Agaba Pauline and Namuli Cissy

So outrageous and disgusting
Feeling so filthy
Getting close to you
Thinking you would be there
When in happiness and difficult times
But oh!
You showed me the devil itself
Spending time with you
Like a baby with its doll
Without thinking twice
Filth is what you portrayed to me
I thought it was a dream
But oh!
Reality it turned out to be
Thinking of turning to a friend
Disgusted with life, me your son
Feeling so depressed
You inflicted a deep wound on my heart
I can’t forget you for this
Mother!!
