MAGI : ITS TOUGH BEING A SINGLE MUM
Being a single mom is hard, yes we talk about being independent women, tough women, rocking it chii chii but yah.
All my body wanted to do was break down and cry, but I couldn’t do that. I was all alone,
my baby lying on my lap takagara pabench panze kuclinic. The nurses had told me mwana needs a doctor, doctors were on strike, I didn’t have enough money on me to go to the private one(serves me right for procrastinating on medical aid for her).
The meds they had prescribed vanga vasina (so much for free healthcare for kids under 5). my phone had switched off, battery rapera and the clinic staff had told me I need to go outside coz vakuvhara. Couldn’t even sit on the bench outside coz they wanted to close their gate, so I had to wait outside for the cab. The one person who always drops everything when I need her was across the border, my mom.
Samara is my rock, my anchor, when I’m down she always lifts me up, it’s hard seeing her like this. Now she is saying “Aunty Ellen “, that’s her preschool teacher, she isn’t feeling well but wants to go to school, she didn’t get that from me.
