|Who Is To Be Blamed?(a Poem Dedicated To All Sickle Cell Carriers) by godisablack(m): 9:02am On Jun 19, 2019|
Yellow eyes, fading white teeth
Hair Dreadlocked, forced smile
Was all I could see on her face
As her mum was smiling back at her
I looked closer
Her legs were thin too
Belly swollen like a two months pregnancy
This baby is in real pain
I whispered to myself
I tried not to look again
But, I can't
The young girl is not happy
She cannot be happy
She has learnt pain at this tender age
I cried gently.
And I left.
Hence, came this thought
God why would you allow such?
Is it a punishment to her?
What has the baby done to face this
Suffering at this early stage?
Could it be the parents fault?
Were they meant to be punished through her?
But the baby is not guilty
Or is she?
This time, I was thinking too much
Life is unfair
Throwing anything at us
Nobody is really safe
Who is to be blamed?
The parents? for not thinking?,
The baby? For what?
Life? For hosting this suffering?
Or is it God for allowing the suffering?
I cried again and left....
