21 Years Ago, a 15 year old seeking to find her path was brutally raped by her employer, all she had to show was a twin birthed 9 months after.
Hid behind the childhood abuse, layers and layers of Rejection, often criticized, broken, bruised, she refused to be a statistic and became the standard not just to both of you but to thousands of young men and women around Africa and the world who would be raped, battered, abused and denied a fair hearing as kids that they could be and become just anything they set their minds to and rape wasn’t the end of a lifeline but the beginning of lifetime experience where you had the power to define its outcomes.
To every single teenage mom, to every young person who has been themed a mistake and misfit… here I stand your validation that “No one and nothing has the power to define who you become but you” choose what you will be well.
IF I were allowed a choice of my battles, I would have chosen simpler conflicts but no, this life chose me and I will live it fully.
I have made a lot of mistakes but each time I look at both of you, I knew I did the right thing to keep you even when I didn’t know just how. ….the evening and the morning and it’s the 21st Birthday of my sons. Everything has changed since you came because of the blood. “May you have auspiciousness and causes of success, May you have the confidence to always do your best, May you take no effort in your being generous, Sharing what you can, nothing more nothing less, May you know the meaning of the word happiness, May you always lead from the beating in your chest, May you be treated like an esteemed guest, May you get to rest, may you catch your breath. And may the best of your todays be the worst of your tomorrows, And may the road less paved be the road that you follow“
