I haven't smiled

I haven't smiled

 

I haven't  smiled ... for  awhile

Didn't  laugh ... forgot  how  to

Couldn't  connect ... with  the  subject

I'm  angry ... not  happy

I'm  mad  and  sad

But,  I'm  not  weak ... that  you  can  break

Rather,  I'm  malleable ... and  adaptable

Because ...

I know  who  stole ... my  smile

Killed  my  Son ... Raped  my  Child

And  left  me ...

With  painful  and ... Horrendous  experiences

Scarred ... for  life

But ...

I'll  make a  new ...  Smile

Because,  I'm ... a Mother that  doesn't  die

I'm Tigrawiti ... that gives Life

 

Dedicated, to all Tegaru Mothers who are going through painful experiences

ትግራይ ትዕወት !!!
