The moment my father imprisoned me changed everything

“The moment my father imprisoned me changed everything. The reason for my detention was because of my step-mother. She mistreated me. I was feeling sick one day, and I couldn’t attend school because of the little food rations she gave me compared to her kids. She then told my father that he’s wasting money paying my tuition fees since I’m skiving school. She was doing that on purpose so that my father would be angry at me. My father ignored it at first but then when I confronted him privately that she’s giving me leftovers and that I’m hungry all the time, he got angry and sided with my step-mum. She persuaded him to imprison me as part of ‘coming back to my senses’. They put me in prison with degenerates–convicted criminals who committed serious crimes. I could survive the loneliness and the injustice of being unfairly imprisoned, but what pained more than anything was the state of my mother, who was alone and sick. I was her only child, and she needed me. I used to pray every night that we would be reunited and that God would restore her health as she had a mental illness. But by the will of God, the inevitable happened. My mother passed away whilst I was in prison, and what hurts me the most is that I was the last person to find out. My father didn’t tell me nor did my maternal uncles. They hid it from me. Out of sympathy, they could have allowed me to be part of my mother’s funeral or consoled me, but no one did. I found it through my friends by using a smuggled phone. Even the girl that I wanted to build a family left me after she heard that I was wrongly imprisoned. She abandoned me just like that after everything I’ve done for her. As for my father, I’ve forgiven him, but we are no longer in communication, and frankly, I want it that way. I’ve realised that I can no longer rely on anyone except myself. I’ve been tested before, but I’ll make sure that I’m ready for it the next time around. “(2/2)

“Isla markii aabbahay i xiray ayee waxkasta waa is bedeleen. Sababta aabBahay I qabtay waxay ahayd aayahay oo is xun ila dhaqmi jirtay si ka duwan caruurteeda kale sababtoo ah waxay isiin jirtay cunto ka yar inta ay siiso caruurteeda aniguna maalintaas waxaan dareemay xanuun u badnaa gaajo oo iskuulka maanan aadin. Waxay ku tiri aabbahay ninkani wakhti iyo lacag buu khasaarinaya iskuulkana ma tago, iyadu sidan waxay u samaynaysa si ay igu dirto aabbahay isaguna iigu xanaaqo aniga. Markii hore aabbahay mu rumaysan, laakiin mar danbe ayaan isku dayey si gooni ah in aan ugu sheego cuntada guriga laga isiiyo in ay tahay cunada kasoo hara dadka sidaas darteedna aan gaajo awgeed xanuunsaday maalintaas. Wuu carooday kadib wuxuu la saftay aayahay. Sidaas kumay joogin, waxay ku qancisay in la i xiro dhaqan celin ahaan. Kadib waxay igu xireen meel xabsi ah sidii aan danbi gelay laakiin waan ka nolaan karaa cidladii iyo cadaalad daradii la igu xiray, mida murugaada ugu badan igu keentay waxay ahayd xanuunka hooyaday haleelay iyo xalada ay ku jirtay wakhtigaas madaama aan ahaa ilmaheedi keli ah ay markaas u baahnayd. Habeen kasta waxaan ku ducaysan jiray in aan dib ula midoobo hooyaday, waxaan ilaay ka baryi jiray in uu xiskeeda usoo celiyo. Laakiin qadarta Eebbe hooyaday intii aan jeelka ku jiray waa dhimatay, qalbigaygana waxaa aad u damqay in aan noqday qofkii ugu danbeeyey ee ogaada geerideeda. Aabbahay ima sheegin, abtiyadayna ima sheegin waa iga qariyeen, hadii ay naxariis ii hayn lahayeen waxay i ogolaan lahayeen in aan ka qayb galo aaska hooyaday, laakiin midaas ma dhicin. Geerida hooyaday waxaan ku ogaaday telefoon saaxiibaday si hoose igula soo hadli jireen, isla wakhtigaas waa xiligii ay go’aansatay in aan kala harno gabadhii aan rabay in aan noloshayda la qaybsado kadib markay ogaataday in aan jeel kujiro. May qiimayn wanaagii aan u sameeyey. Anigu aabbahay waa samaxay, lakiin xiriir malihin, xaqiiqdiina sidaasaan rabaa, waxaan ogaaday in aanan u baahnayn cidna laakiin naftayda u bahanay in aan dhiso, wakhti adag waa isoo maray hadana waxaan diyaar u ahay noloshayda in aan dib u dhiso.” (2/2)
