Repentance Note

I mistreated you dear wife.
Those scars scares me,
Each time I stare at you.
I’m tortured by my past,
What about you and our children?
My hands were weapons,
Now they are praying to the Most High,
I call upon forgiveness.
My rehab is Evolve Motivational Fridays.

Life without you all is hard,
Children, Dad didn’t get it!
Uncounted times he made mistakes.
Let me sooth wounds I inflicted you all.
Sorry for treating you like my slaves,
Your mother was brave enough and she left me.
She couldn’t stand the grave I was digging for her,
To be where I am, she lifted me.

I was a monster. Yes I can’t denie that,
Doors to honesty were closed for me.
I’m sorry, you were to be happy in my absence,
Yes, you couldn’t stand my presence.
Patriarchal roles I misused.
Dear wife you’re not my material,
Expressed my superiority with clenched fist,
The gaps between your teeth makes me a monster.

I’m now a born again,
No longer bona fide.
For my mistakes I’m seeking redemption.
Protesting against Gender Based Violence,
I victimised you, I know the feeling.
Dad is crawling into new phase,
Full of happiness
Retooling my hands to care for life,
Trying to get back what I lost.

Today as the According to Stewie Le Savage family we are celebrating 16 days of activism against Gender Based Violence alongside RayCee. Thank you
