COUNTLESS By Mweni Chola(Zambia)



Let me just say it was love at first sight;
He was--the perfect Prince charming.
If there's anything better than a fairy tale,
then he definitely belonged there.

I was captivated by his physique
His body I instantly fail for

Look,
I was just a  teenage  high school girl
And my best friends had sugar daddies 
Who gave them everything my
father failed to give my mother
When he was around.
So when I saw this, man he was definitely my catch.

I admit,
He was 3 times my age,
Had a wife, and children
His last born was above my age
but I could care less.

I was ready  to give him every bit of my body
Every beat of my heart
So I best believed we were meant to be.

He gave me luxury beyond what my mother earned
Throughout 59 years of her life, 
I opened up for him physically.
I mean,
I gave him personal satisfaction.

The satisfaction I failed to give
my school certificate.
Wait,
I never got to have one
I killed many babies for his sake

He was man enough to lay me
down on his bed in his house; 
So the abortions in our
relationship were countless.

Chill,
I could count less at least he gave me cash
that gave me counting  problems.
But time came when this  one refused to die;
I used every method but NO.

As I speak to you from  down here (hell)
This same one,
As I tried to abort him,
he actually aborted my life and
I tell you, it's not pretty down here.

LENSES

I struggled for too long Being who I wasn’t Fitting  my circle into other people's 
perfect squares -- into all their
expectations for me Their perception was all that mattered What they will see and say Their standard for success and achievement
I showed up acting who I wasn’t Like a dancing monkey under obligations to perform magic To gain their recognition and affirmations for being who I wasn’t Against being Me
I broke the chains and gained freedom the day I stopped looking at myself through other people’s lenses because I discovered people wore lenses tinted and shaded to suit them not Me

WHO EXACTLY

Housed in a container Moved in it Identified by its aesthetics But sometimes lost in it Who exactly am I the container or the content
Sometimes I try so hard to figure exactly what it is about this combo Sometimes complicating other times compelling sometimes conflicting other times cooperating
Influenced by the countless conversations with  the inner and the  outer the seen and the unseen the known and the unknown Then I discover It goes beyond this container there is something about content
As adorned as this container maybe embellished with so much beauty the content remains the substance that give it credibility Beyond the container that interacts is the content that keeps the flow is the content that leaves  memorable impacts
