I wish I was never born. Mama didn’t get the least burial. Papa said they never got married. Her brother said her hometown couldn’t take her back. She was on exile because she brought home shame__I was that shame. I ruined mama’s life and even in her lying state she wasn’t free of the ridicule. Papa said she had to be thrown into the forest. He assured me that his hometown was mine, I still don’t know why mama’s was different. Why couldn’t he fight for her? He cared more about his image. I really wish I wasn’t born.
