Pain added to my tears
Stinging my weary eyes
Drowning my frustrated soul
All because a friend concluded I was going to die old and lonely.

I look forward to the days when I would dress the room in pink
Little dresses, skirts, ribbons and baby shoes
Daydreaming of cooing to my laughing baby in the crib
Oh, how we would swim in the ocean of joy, licking the honey of laughter.

Instead, I watched, with pain in my tears
How gleefully you exhibited your marks
You oohed and aahed endlessly about the nine months of wonder
Of how your body made a baby of your own.

Your over emphasizing and dramatizing the obvious
Sent a clear message to my weeping soul
It said “you have no heavy milk laden breasts to exhibit”
“You have no experience of how the pain felt like to chatter about”.

I am not jealous because you have kids
I am not bitter because you are married
I may be pained because I cook for myself alone
You didn’t need to mock my situation cause Heaven is not through with me yet.

I am truly happy for you though I don’t have heavy laden breasts to exhibit
Neither can I talk about how the labor pains felt like
I want you to know I have not given up on myself
I want you to be there for me the way I was there for you till the pain is surely taken away from my tears.

An acquaintance of mine was once mocked in a group because he didn’t have a car and hence his position in the group was questioned. Have you ever been mocked before because of what you lack? Why are people not always compassionate to the less privileged? Is it proper to mock someone because of their disabilities? Talk to me in the comments section below.

Happy New Year

Only God can wipe away tears, He can heal the broken heart, He can soothe every pain and bring comfort to the weary soul. We should trust Him and He will do what man cannot do. Happy 2021.

I was mocked for having only daughters
You see my mum didn’t have a son all four of us are girls
When I gave birth I gave birth to a daughter followed by another
My sisters who married after me had daughters also
Then the mocking started
Then the advice to my husband to take another wife started
They weren’t even concerned or happy that I had two beautiful daughters for them
They said there were no boys and can never be boys in my Mother’s house
So I turned to GOD and bared my soul
I cried and gave HIM reasons why I needed a son

And GOD remembered Benedicta
My son David came so did boys rain in my Mother’s house
Suddenly my sisters all had boys my last sister had to beg me to pray for her to at least have a daughter

Yes I have been MOCKED but GOD made me triumph over all

    Whoa. This is deep. Thank God o. People can be unnecessarily wicked. Are daughters not human beings too. Someday, you got to put your memoirs together. Wow….
