It Could Have Been You Printable Version PRINTABLE VERSION
by Jacob Baiden Odame, Ghana Oct 24, 2005
Child & Youth Rights , Health   Poetry


It could have been you
So show me love
It could have been you
So don't make me the more sad
Oh! this dreadful disease
This Acquired Immune Deficiency
Has taken my freedom
Give me your hand
And by my side always stand
My identity has not changed
So don't let me look strange
Please spare me the criticism
And stop the ostracism
I have learnt my lesson
But I want to be like any normal person
So give me your hand
And by me always stand

Writer Profile
Jacob Baiden Odame

I am Jacob Baiden Odame. I am a student of the University of Ghana in West Africa. I read Economics and Computer Science. I really love youth issues and I am looking for more opportunity to be more involved, especially in TakingITGlobal. Although I am not a literature student I really love writing and reading very much. I particularly love poems because although they may be short, they convey useful information in plain simple language. Among my cherished writers are William Shakespeare and Kofi Awoonor.
