I should have been quiet like you said, maybe they wouldn’t have taken me.
They put me and the others in a dark room. Their sobbing makes me sick.
Today I got to know what they do with the children they take out of the room. It is scary.
I miss Tayo and Simbi.
Do they miss me too?
Mama, I miss the stories you told under the full moon. I miss your cooking, especially the Afang soup and garri.
Did you know we eat human entrails in the morning until we are ready?
Mama, I just miss home.
