My parent ruined my dream wedding
Since I was a child
I have always dreamt of a nice
Small wedding but a big night
But one question I always ask
Is can I ??
Knowing fully well the type
Of parent I have
Or should I just talk about
My dad, a strong headed man?
Or my mum, the real party life?
They will never come in terms with
A very small wedding
Because all they ever want is
A very big wedding which
All their friends and relatives
In far and near places
Will contribute money
And buy asoebi (family dress)
And also have all types of meals
To eat on the day of the wedding
My parent have always been mean
They have never allowed me
Do anything the way I want it
Everything must go the way they want it
Though I am used to it!
I am used to me
Hiding in their shell since I was a kid
I am used to me
Living like a prisoner in
My own community
It all started since I was a kid
Up until I became a teen
Into being a youth
It has always been the Mr and Mrs
Dictating my life for me
Like I'm some piece of garbage bin
No decisions I make will
Ever be good enough for me
Only theirs will be'
I pray God helps me!
Finally, it was my wedding!
Oops! I think I'm forgetting something
Final conclusion about the wedding?
After so much pleading
Was it still done small or big?
Big is an understatement for my wedding
It was super exceedingly big
What were you expecting?
For my parent to agree to my will?
All the invited guest started arriving
From all nooks and crannies
Both within and outside the country
The wedding hall was said to be
A five thousand people capacity
You can start to perceive
Aroma of different kinds of meals
The event ushers were all dressed accordingly
The decorations were done perfectly
And lights were blooming
Seeing everyone dressed in teal green
As this is the color code is heart warming
Pop songs started playing
So as to ginger the life of the party
Everything looks so appealing
Soon, the party started fully
The groom and his family arrived
Awaiting the bride to arrive
Finally, I walked in majestically
Everyone was astonished at the beauty
What a beauty, what a beauty!
This was whispered among the groom's relatives
Everything looks so amazing
Even though I never wanted to that big
I still loved and appreciated it
Here comes the moment we are expecting
The couple was joined in holy matrimony
Everyone shouted heavily
"They are married already"
My mum shouted heavily
May you now kiss the bride
The pastor told my husband
Everywhere was soon filled with the noise from claps
Suddenly, we heard a gun shot from outside
Somebody suddenly shouted "everyone lie down"
In a second, fear gripped people heart
What is that "everyone whispered"
A group of men hurriedly entered
With guns and knives in their hands
I started crying out loud
We are kidnappers
And we are here for the bride
Said one of the gangs
They dragged me away into their car
And drove out of sight
I was taken to an hidden house
Far away from town
I was given a phone to type my parent number
I heard them making a call
Demanding fifty million ransom
It took 7 days for my parents to raise that
So I had to stay 7 days in the house
Because they had to sell their house
They paid the ransom at last
Just that it was already too late
As I was already been raped for 5 consecutive times
Considering the fact that I was a virgin before that time
I was later released after my parent paid the ransom
Oh my husband, he waited patiently for our wedding night
Now tell me, how am I supposed to face my husband?😭😭
Note that this rhymes are all fiction and it is born purely out of my imaginary thoughts.
