Fumban Innot Phiri Poems
A Wedding Gift
Right in front of pastor's Puppet Right there pastor hold it there… And please pastor don't bless this wedding I am here to confess all my suffering.
I approached the shores of life At a tender age I was turned into an early wife Born a girl from a sin of my father. My mother,
I approached the shores of life
At a tender age I was turned into an early wife
Born a girl from a sin of my father.
Yes my mother was called in by a sudden death
The same day I was produced in this planet earth
Right there she cried with labour pain
Yet she knew it wasn't in vain
Now I tried to forget all the pain
