Ikhiloya Imokhai
Saturday 13 April 2019


They cut her deep
She was so young and naive
She couldn’t restrain
Mothers danced and made merry
This would make her strong on this journey
At least they thought

Years gone by, the scars still remain
Her seams begin to crack
Nothing to hold on to
She’s been held hostage by a ritual
She’s been bruised and broken
By this psychologically tainted philosophy

Every night is a reminder
Of this never ending horror

The gentleness of his touch
And tenderness of his caress 
Brings back ugly memories…
