My whole life, I'd never known any girl stronger, brave and determined to live..
She was a girl who spent her whole life circled around this four white walls
with that beeping sound always reminding...
She never lived : She spent her whole life fighting
She was a survivor... (in my words) 🤐
Moremi, a 12 years old girl born in the western part of Nigeria in the west of Africa..
Some times I can't take my head and mind off thinking of her
Each time I tried, my memories jogs back to her chubby face and innocent dark eyes
It almost made me feel she was trying to reach out to me for help 😔
Yet I couldn't help her....
At times she puzzled her mind to thinking how the outside world would be like and would turn out to be
Sometimes she looses hope..
Yes she fought (smiles) 😔
Yet this sickness fought harder
For a kid like 12?
Twas too much for her to cuddle...
Yes she was brave 🤐😫
The bravest girl I've ever seen
Yet this sickness was a terrorist around her walls
Yes she determined to live
And spend all the dreams and nightmares she saw at night
Yes she had a great life ahead of her
But this sickness....... This sickness was a threat to her every aspirations
This sickness chocked her every chance....
There were times when the doc and all his team
And her body temperature begins to drop
And her body systems begin to fail
When everyone must have done all they could
She would just jolt back on gasping air
And the tears in her mother's eyes
And scare in her father's
She always wished one day the hands of the doc would let go
The hands of family
The hands of loveones would slide out
And let her drown in the pit she was birth into.
Her tears were terrifying..
It wasn't a sight to behold.....
Today, we lay this Same lad
Six feet deep into the soil : this surly earth
Today Cancer has won again
Today it celebrates again
A soul down...
And all we could offer is a shed of tears?
And all we do is to scream the name of God blaming him and asking silly questions why!!?
What we need to offer is a cure
To all those fighting one sickness or the other out there
You are strong
You are brave
You are determined to live
But this won't end like every other sad story
This won't end like Moremi..
I've lost a girl, I've lost a niece..
