tell a mother she has lost a child is to tell a mother
she has failed…
People point and whisper…look at me as if they can
feel my pain…
I look at my step dad…and he can’t do nothing…he
can’t stop my pain, he’s fighting his own…
An unprovoked attack, that’s what they called it…
Shopping centre, broad daylight, people everywhere –
No one even tried to stop it...

People point and say – that’s the girl whose

My mum came to this country for a better life…
I came so my children could be safe…
She is burying her son…
head is spinning...
No pain will persist

Aniwa, why are you drinking so much…?
(To Celeste) You’re always on my case…
Ok, hold my shoes...
You ain't gotta a clue
I'm sixteen and three quarters
And I'm way ahead of my game
Watch me jump from here to there?
I swear I can…do you dare me?
