Dear Santa, by Chidima Blessing.

Standard

Dear Santa,

I’m a child…I think. I guess you see I seem to be in doubt of my “childhood”. Why?

Well…Santa, in recent times babies engage in sex (thought that was for married adults), through RAPE! This happens at 5months or 5years and other worse times of their lives.

13year-old girls don’t need explanation on what pregnancy is…they’ve been pregnant a couple of times. Mum and others didn’t seem to notice ’cause “Brother”, “uncle”, and sometimes “Daddy” took care of “everything”.

The 16year-old boy ’round my block has become a serial “Baby papa”, ’cause “big aunty” used him to warm her bed when he was 6, through “threats” and “treats”. Now he is out of control!

What killed “Childhood”? Is it “Tradition” or “Technology”, “Religion” or “Revolution”? I’m not sure which and I don’t care. One thing I’m sure of is my Christmas Wish:
SANTA, PLEASE RESTORE CHILDHOOD…
…so, I can have my INNOCENCE back!

Yours sincerely,
        Child

  1. Hello Titi,
    This is not a Christmas wish. I dont celeberate Christmas. However, can i talk to you for a bit? I work in a Bank and i guess you know how crazy it is working in a Bank on the Island. However, I have always nurtured a passion for photography…you know, take picures of children playing outside in the rain, dawn at 6 am in the morning and just capture moments of life in a frame.

    Why can’t i do that? I have a full schedule during weekdays and the only time i have for my kids and myself is late at night or on weekends. Now weekends is for field service ( I am one of Jehovah’s Witnesses), doing homework,shopping, cooking and generally catching up with what i have missed during the week. Oh boy, i didnt even mention spending time with my husband….oh dear.

    So, the challenge i have is that while i would want to learn photography/painting/sculptor, I can only do that on weekends but i dont want to neglect my family to pursue my goals cos my kids are still very little and i dont want to neglect my husband even further…..i already feel guilty in that line.

    What can i do? i want to learn photography/painting but i dont have time for it. Any ideas, honey?

    Regards
