www.facebook.com/WRRPoetry [I’m Sorry Mama]
I write this with a lot of pain
My tears have become ink
I’m sorry I believed him
But he promise to love me, forever
He promised to rebuild Papa’s house

I was excited Mama, imagined leaving this hut
He promised to clothe us with wealth
And send Amaka and Junior to school
I didn’t know Mama. I didn’t know it was all a lie
I gave him the treasure you said I should keep for my husband
But I did it for us. All I wanted was a better life for us

I thought he was the one, until I got pregnant
He called me a whore, Mama
Sent me away with bruises from his fist
The doctors said I won’t survive
The drugs I took have damaged me inside

Please don’t cry for me Mama
Tell Amaka my story
So that she will be a lot wiser
I’m sorry mama
