I once had a Home

By June 30, 2019 No Comments

I once had a home; a life; a dream that I, Fateema, will become a nurse in Chibok.

My best friend, Hadiza, would be a lawyer. Kai, that girl could argue for Africa.

Her brother, Yusufu, the light of my life would leave for Harvard to study medicine. Harvard!

I would miss our stolen kisses and he my fura de nunu.

But our dreams died with a devastating bang.

Now, Yusufu is a rotting headless corpse; Hadiza is swollen with her first bastard; And I am parting sore thighs for the men who took my home, my life, my dreams.
