I don’t come from much
If you view me through the lens of your standards.
I don’t measure up.
My bed is a worn out one inch mattress on a mat in the corner of a round hut
My shoes are only worn on special days
My clothes maybe your rags
I have never seen nor experienced what you may have.
These fields that I run in are mine to do as I please.
This ball made from polythene and ropes holds my dreams
I am young.
I am hopeful.
I am football
I am Uganda
Uganda Cranes here I come.
