Joy Is Like A Pot Full of Water

War and Peace

Joy is like a rose dipped in a small pot which looks bright.
Joy is like water which makes the planet’s flowers live smelling sweet.
Joy is like a pot full of water in a pot which feels cool.
I wish to be joyful for the rest of my life.

Akello Monica Latifah, a Primary School Pupil, made this drawing and wrote this poem. At the height of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) insurgency in Northern Uganda, CPAR Uganda (at the time the country office of Canadian Physicians for Aid and Relief) implemented a Peace Building Project in Gulu.

As part of the project, primary school pupils were encouraged to express themselves through drawings and writing.
