IF ONLY THEY KNEW By Tekena Ikoko

I hid in the darkness
afraid of the night
hoping my shadow
would cover my face
But they took our picture
spread it on tablets
As though they are perfect
forgetting I’m human.

I kept my child
Even though I was just twelve
It was a mistake
but this child isn’t a mistake;
He had to man up – quickly
He was thirteen but he didn’t leave me
Our parent threw us away
The baby and the dirty water
I couldn’t find my smile
Critics lined up a mile
They ridiculed us online
But they don’t know a solution

Then I heard of Tekena Ikoko,
They call him Mr. EQ;
Where was he all my life?
He made mentoring so easy.
I registered for his training
And tears became laughter

If only my parents knew,
If only my critics knew,
If only my teachers knew.
They would have done better.
If only you know,
If only you’d register
You will do better.

Will you register?
