Lost Childhood Innocence

Lost Childhood Innocence

by: Mar’Kata Rhaimes

“I still mourn bitterly for my far-lost childhood innocence.
Shall I yet again crave the mystic return of only the harmless parts of ignorance,
Or shall I just secretly give in to this slow-killing protraction of quiescence…? “
-Mar’Kata Rhaimes

Mar'Kata Rhaimes holds a Computer Science (BSc) degree from Makerere University (Kampala - Uganda). He's the self-published author of one of the newest poetry collections on the market, titled "Voices Of May". In 2018, he co-authored and was the main editor of a Bible fun-fact book titled "God Is Humorous", written by Henry Waisswa Ntende (a lawyer, pastor and team leader at The Worship House, Nansana - Kampala, Uganda). Mar'Kata Rhaimes also co-authored with 7 other writers in a poetry-and-prose anthology titled "The River Banks", published in Kampala - Uganda, under a writers' initiative called PENit, in August 2016. He's since featured on several performance-poetry and youth event platforms in and around Kampala. He's been performing spoken word poetry, primarily in church, under different poetry groups like PENit Writers' Initiative, Ladu Poetry, The Word Smiths Poetry UG, The Brush, and currently Engelo420. Lately he started attempting to add motivational speaking, song writing and music recording onto his literary career. When his glare is not stuck onto a laptop or smartphone screen, he's either hanging out with old friends and/or acquaintances, laughing at another silly joke crafted or narrated by one of his 2 young brothers, melting off a long week's heavy heart with a Friday-evening 10km-run, fantasizing about the future or his secret crush(es), or just quietly figuring out what to do next. He also enjoys watching fellow poets perform their craft on stage, motivational videos/movies and TED Talks. He'd fall for any sentimental song without minding what genre it actually falls under. Often times also, he finds himself very curious about Ethical Hacking, Aviation and Navy Seal training.
