I was a little girl jumping up in my daddy's arms.
I was a teenager, styled in my dungarees and platform hooker heels trying to be cool like the girl group of my times.
I was a late teenager in the university trying to be mature and cool at the same time that it hurt my mind.
I was the shy girl that LW asked out in my second year of the university. I was finally experiencing all the grown up feelings I had heard and read about.
I was the beautiful serious minded lady who never joked with her studies and her friends
I was the girl who then lost her way, became distracted by lots of irrelevant things
I was the girl who was so eager to start earning money that I began business as a student
I was the girl who did her NYSC and was not the least interested in serving her country
I was the girl who found a job, so excited and called friends who exchanged pay day rates.
I was the girl who after three years at the job felt unfulfilled
I was the girl who found the man of her dreams and got married.
I was the girl who after marriage wished I had remained single
I was the girl who had one, then two, now three kids.
I am the girl who wants to hide from all the responsibilities I am faced with. Would give anything to ride out on a jet with no worries.
I am the girl who celebrated her 40th birthday party in style.
My 50th was even grander, there was much more money and clout.
At my 60th, I held my husband, glad that I had found my soul mate in life
Now It is almost dusk
I wake up thankful for the life I have had, for the husband, for the children. But did I really do what I wanted for myself. Did I fulfil my own purpose???
Now I sleep...
You still have a chance baby girl.
