Niger Girl on Naija Street

That girl parades street in all seasons with her dirty skin; curly, dirty and unoiled hair


You will be embarrassed in a park or a market
A populated street or a pedestrian bridge
by an innocent fair girl of very young age
begging for alms, clutching on your wrist.

She would follow you with all desperation
while you think of a decision –
To dip your hands in your pocket
or to claim your wrist with a fist.

Your mind would later sit to reason –
That girl parades street in all seasons
with her  dirty skin; curly, dirty and unoiled hair
and her small legs following strangers everywhere.

Tears would flow in your solitude
of a shattered dream you saw by the roadside
and wonder how she lives through the tides
Supposed jewel in Niger striving in Naija adversities.
