  • My love and respect for you will never shrivel though I detest your actions.
    Time has passed without the knowledge of what has been happening to her. Things that she chose to keep secret as it’s been accepted as the norm.
    She put up with a lot, both physically and mentally and still stayed, tending to her 'scars' in solitary silence. Not anymore!!
    She broke the mold and took a shot at freedom, peace of mind and all around well being.
    The ‘elders’ gave their time and input and like always, all presumed the matters were solved.
    Time is the master and back to your old ways you went.

    It’s been her life for as long as she can remember. Being your typical African wife, living with an unhealthy mindset, one that sets women up since millennia.
    Her life had been filled with anguish and that’s why she made her choice.
    She is now confident and strong enough to share her story no matter how staining it is to your canvas, relation and what you both ‘had’ for decades.
    So confident and determined and I hope she isn’t looking back.
    New beginnings might seem scary to her , but she is willing and able to change the course of her life…..after all, she left for her own safety and sanity.
    Its ‘unacceptable’ in the eyes of ‘society’ yet I chose to stand with her. To see her genuinely happy, content, healthy and vibrant like I know her.
    The ‘elders’ better stay at bay and let her be her own person, make her own free choices (she did already) and live a healthy life.

    As your offspring, separation/divorce is a bitter pill to swallow, my siblings and I are lost for words. I want both of you to be happy but not at the expense of each other’s well being.
    I love and respect both of you, I have and will always do. It’s hard to have to choose but common sense to want peace for all involved.
    I hope you can find peace, unclog your inner self and learn to be at peace with yourself.
    It’s not an easy task, it’s a lifetime commitment, that of being at peace.
    I will always LOVE YOU dad and will always stand for NON VIOLENCE.
