Comments about Esther Mukabi
Scream in the morning when she opens her eyes
Scream in the evening as the last light dies
Scream in the night while the demons attack
Scream in the day. They are back.
Scream in the office as she answers the phone
Scream in the street when she’s walking home
Scream in the pub, over a game of pool
Scream in the theatre as she plays the fool
Scream in the shower as she washes her hair
Scream in the wind when she rides the faire
Scream in the shop as she tries on skirts
Scream in the club while she coldly flirts
Scream in the park as she feeds the...
The Day she said “I Do” was the proudest of her life.
Her darling, darling husband took her for his wife.
She thought her life would turn around
She thought that she would tread new ground
She hoped her tears would cease that day
She hoped her fears would fade away.
He said he loved her for all time,
She thought it was more than a line.
She never knew love caused more pain
