I have never known the pain caused by losing loved ones until I missed my mother because since I lost her there was no more happiness in our family.
For twelve years, I get to find that my grandmother with my father had agreed to hide what happened.
When I understood what happened and how they hid that information from me, I was caught with despair and anguish. To add an injury to the wound, there is this kind of kid who aggravated my circumstances.
“My young lady sorry, for this but listen to me, all people are crying for your mother’s death but you have to forget the past and capture the future," she told me.
Nonetheless, later my father came to reveal the hidden package and one day told me "my daughter I will be your father, your mother, sibling and your friend all the time. I want to tell you that your mother passed away,” my father’s words lead me into hopelessness. I cried until I felt sleepy .
My dream is to become a doctor because now am the only one in our family as soon as my father got married to another woman who is my stepmother to date.
Sadly, I always got insulted by remembering how my mother fought strong wars to save my life. In all our conversations my mother has empathized with my future, she encouraged me to be a doctor.
After many years, I forgot what parental love looks like because I was left with family and started a life of struggle without having a mother. And my father later died and I later dropped out of school and my dreams of becoming started to falter. Fortunately, there was a rich extended family and came to adopt me. That family becomes a blessing to me because they become a part of my life.
In the family, teaching their children was a cornerstone wealth they have to give them and I was never barred from this privilege. They saved me from being thrown on the street because they accepted to adopt me.
And I came to understand that people who are afraid to experience sadness never enjoy the sweetness of success.
