HEINOUS TRIBAL MARKS

With a glowing face I came to your world,

Like other infants on my first day, they rejoiced,

Talking drums talked love,

Generosity at first not the heinous forthcoming.

Betoken steps from my mother,

Like a criminal I was handed over to skin carver,

“wuan wuan  wuan” In state of acute pain i cried,

Suddenly! My faces got stamped with marks.

In jiffy my cheek turn red,

blood mixed with tears flowing down to neck,

Like Moon and stars I was close to death,

Where is the angel that leads me here?

The scar healed taking away my beauty,

Pure minded but mirror says am a beast,

Alone behind mud-wall I cried for justice,

Who then shall show me sympathy?

When tradition justified this act,

God! can you just take me back?

My self esteem was down to ground,

Oh! what a lion fighter!

Insane heritage and culture of land,

With this barbaric practice, indoor in daylight out in the dark?

What a “For better for worse” barrier!

Time heals everything except a tribal mark.
