Don’t do this to me I cried as I knelt in front of them a gag about to be put in mu mouth and my hands firmly tied behind. Every plea falling on deaf ears. On the bus I recalled the good times wondering the last time we smiled, wishing i did everything right by not making mama and papa love me.

I remembered as they sold me off with cold faces reward for my every smile while they frowned. My soon to be trip to the United States was now a trip to heaven knows where. Sadness emanated as I cried when we stopped at sunset. House alive with what seemed like a million moans making me to finally realize what had really happened. Stories I dreaded played before my eyes.

“What have I done?” ringed in my ears falling to my knees as my head turned I refused to be comforted. I refused to believe that my worst had just happened. I shouldn’t have been the best I should have been lazy because now my diligence made me just like Joseph betrayed. Betrayed by my own siblings.
