To 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...

I should have been there, I should have protected him…

People point and say – that’s the girl whose brother got shanked…

So what am I supposed to feel? What am I supposed to do?

My sister should be here making her dry jokes and foolish comments…telling me to stop nicking her stuff…

But when I look at my mum… she’s lost…

I found this school letter in his pocket...

My mum came to this country for a better life…

I came so my children could be safe…

And now…

She is burying her son…

My head is spinning...
No pain will persist
‘Cos of vodka with a twist.

Aniwa – why are you drinking so much?

(Singing)
‘Coz everybody in the club getting tipsy...
Well, not my sister anyway…
(To Celeste) want some?
No? So, I guess it’s just me then!
I'm free, I’m a G!
(Singing) ‘Coz everybody in the club getting tipsy...

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?
Yeah?
Just watch…
