Tears Of A Blind Girl
“Where is my stick??” I asked no one in particular..
I can’t see anyone?
I’m clouded with darkness, I can’t tell if anyone was hearing me, I don’t know if there was anyone around..
“Can someone help me find my stick, it just dropped off my grip now!” I bawled with tears forming in my eyes as I moved my hand all over the floor in search of it..
You can’t tell how frustrated I am now..
I think my mom isn’t around because she is the only one that hears my cry, she is the only one I have..
My dad and step mother are the thorns in my flesh, I don’t know how anyone of them looks like but I can tell their voices and feels it whenever I’m with any of them, with their shout and baleful acts towards me, I would know they are the one..
Not one of them likes me a bit, they don’t mind beating me together,
To them and most of the people around, I’m cursed..
I was hated not just by my family but most of the people around,
I had stopped school when I couldn’t bear the scorn anymore..
It was real hell, hatred was all that surrounded me..
The only person that loves me is my mother but she doesn’t stay around always, she is always striving for what we would eat,
I can’t say I have a dad because he doesn’t feed us anymore..
All these plight are as a result of my blindness from birth..
