I Saw Mummy’s Killers” is a writing that would make your eyes watery :


by T.Boris Alemnge

“I saw mummy’s killers
On my journey to seek safety.
When suddenly, images flipped through my mind.

Images of that day,
When mum & I defiled the dangers of the woods,
Running amidst the sounds of bombs & guns,
When suddenly,
I heard a scream.
“Ahhh! Mandiba my son! I’ve been slayed”

In horror I turned back.
finding mum in a pool of blood,
I screamed in frustration.
With my bare nails,
I dog a narrow hole
& with zero honor, I laid her to rest.

I saw my mummy’s killers.
Remorseless & Unapologetic.
Hunger for murder still strolling in their eyes,
Anxiety to pull the trigger still evident in their shaky fingers.

I saw my mummy’s killers,
Still daring to pull me out of the bus & landing my poor knees to the ground.
Still daring to ask me for _”choko”_
& spitting on me & my mum’s memories.
I felt like strangling at least one of them,
I felt like pulling our their mask & send them running mad to their “master”.

I saw my mummy’s killers
But who am I before this huge masked men
Armed from head to toe
Working under cover
& poor me,
Just having my little voice to scream,
& my God to pray”.
