Everywhere went black and blank
Echoes fading away gradually
My ear whistling in pain
While I scampered for balance
It was a slap
Another slap
For being a child

I want to play like my friends
I want to be loved like others
I want daddy’s affirming words
I want mummy’s sweet cuddles
But the opposite I get

You call me unimaginable names
Beat me at every slightest provocation
You whip me like an animal
The scars are everywhere
You compare me with everyone
Never seen anything good in what I do
Never appreciate my effort
Even when I don’t understand why

The sound of your voice is terror to me
What have I done again?
The sound of your feet frightens me
What is it this time?
I fear you
For what you will do to me again

You don't have my time
You don't listen to me
Your busy schedules wouldn’t let you see my needs
I am left in the hands of strangers to grow
You don't know me mum
You don’t know me dad
Yet you call me names

I see my friends parents show up at the school gate
There on their birthdays
Present at their presentations
I have always looked forward to seeing you do same for me
Cheer me in from the crowd
Remind me my lines from the rear
Instead you have called names
When you don’t even know me

So many things I love to share
But I can't
So many things I wish I could tell you
Not on my life
I want you present
Change please
Please change
I want to look forward to coming home
I want a home where I am loved
I want to grow knowing you know me
Please change
Please change

They are our future
Be available in their today

ABUSED - ‘SAYING SOCIETY’ So loud So loud she shouted Shouting for help Every other night She is shouting I can hear her now He is hitting her again She's been hit, beat and battered Wounded inside out Lost her glow Lost herself-worth Lost her confidence Lost her smile All for what the society would say
She is grinding She is grieving She is dying Because the society won't listen to her No one wants to hear her own side of the story No one cares how she feels She has been told to stay there and fight for her home She has been admonished to stay and pray some more She has been told everything will be alright But for how long For how long She has been caged by what the society says
This 'saying society'


My name is Stella Obokoh, I am a wife, mother, writer, educationist and an entrepreneur.Inspiring people through creating pictures in their imaginations makes life good for me. Helping people see light and positivity in every situation is great meal. Seeing people realise and believe in their abilities makes me have a good sleep. I love teaching, I love children so dearly, they are my 'berry berry' anytime and I enjoy being a team player. Starinscriptions is born out of a heart to reach many through creative writings (poems, stories, quotes and writeups) that will be soothing and getting others to do same.
