THE BAD PART OF EDUCATION
The journey of education is never a simple one,
Except for the few lucky one,
Most especially when you have a wealthy background,
Or when you are intelligent in class..
In that case,the journey seems a bit simple...
Compared to one with one a poor background,
Or one who is dull in class..
To me the case is different,
From nursery up to primary four,
The journey seemed a bit smooth,
Simply because i had a full parental support,
On addition to this,
I was a bright one,
And offered a bursary to study free..
However in primary five,
Though i was still in possession of the bursary,
Things turned out to be bad,
Simply because i missed full parental care,
That's after my parents had divorced..
So, i remained under a single mother's parenthood..
With my young siblings inclusive..
Though i was young,
Things changed to the extent that i realized the outcomes,
From then up to now,
Life has been a battle..
Especially in the journey of education..
Few years after the divorce,
My mum and siblings migrated to Rwanda,
I was left in Uganda to continue my education..
I went up up to primary seven,
Through a bursary and support,
From the school director of where i studied by then..
Lucky enough,i succeeded in the primary leaving national exams,
And was offered a bursary which took me through up to secondary three.
It is then when i came to Rwanda,
However life seemed the worst in Rwanda..
I sat for my national exams and lucky enough,
I succeeded and was sent to a good school,
However due to incidences that may seem difficult to explain,
I mean it's a long story...
I had a zig-zag journey from then..
I repeated two years in secondary four,
Not because i was dull..
But because of incidences that i can't i understand..
But all in all,the main cause of all these is my parents divorce..
However,thank God that I've succeeded,
And am being offered full support by my dear mum,
In partnership with my uncles..
Ehhh,it's difficult to explain..
My journey of education deserves a book written,
With it as the reason behind..
Every student has his own troubles,
Through the journey of education,
Be it those who are still in the journey,
Or those who are done...
Everyone has a story to tell..
HOWEVER,MINE IS A TOUGH ONE..
Dedicated to; All students in lower and higher institutions of learning.
