I don't braid my hair. I don't have tattoos. And I don't use earrings.
But I'm planning on braiding my hair and getting a tattoo(s) when I finish school and I'm pretty comfortable.
Comfortable financially, shelter in a comfy environment.
Then, I watched the video where SARS killed HUMAN BEINGS in broad daylight today. And to them, it was nothing. They killed those boys like a regular. Like they do it everyday. Like it's a routine to them. Arrest criminals - disarm them - cuff them - shoot them dead!
My spirit left me. I realised that I haven't seen the worst of this country yet. But now, I know that this country is finished and there's nothing to stay back for.
How do police men do that in 2019? How's extrajudicial killing maintaining law and public order?
It's only a matter of time before you go out and you don't come back home again in this country.
If you don't die by accident, you will die by lawlessness.
Because of that, I'm beginning to rethink my wants to get a tattoo and braid my hair.
Infact, I'm not getting anything until I board that flight out of this country. Which must happen soon anyway. Because I'm tired. I'm tired.
I can't even go near a police officer now. I'm legit scared of all of them.
Because the fear of SARS is the beginning of wisdom.
