TLANGIE

My eyes slowly opened they felt heavy my body felt so tired does death leave you feeling like this..I closed my eyes and opened them again i scanned my surroundings and saw people wearing white coats I was disappointed because I was expecting my ancestors to be standing there to welcome me I guess it wasn't my time. When the nurse saw I was finally awake she called the Dr to turn then they were on me like rash...my throat was dry and they gave me water to drink. I lay there until visiting hours came only my aunt came to see me the disappointment washed over me so it was clear that my own mother doesn't care whether I live or die. My aunt and I spoke and she told me that she had moved out of the house because strange things were happening to her...it started when I was admitted she always felt like  there was a presence in her room and these two nights it tried strangling her then my grandmother told her it was my small tokoloshi. After visiting hours came to an end the hospital psychiatrist came to see me we spoke on a few things then she left...it was clear that I had no home I had no mother to look after me anymore what hurt me the most was the fact that the people who led me to killing myself were busy enjoying life...this gift of mine was both a blessing and a curse. A few weeks later I was discharged from the hospital and the psychiatrist ward since I was diagnosed with depression my aunt came to fetch me and we went to her new place....she was renting a flat in the new area of development it wasn't that far from home though i got me thinking where she got the money from because her job didn't pay that much...we got inside then she lit a candle and told me to speak to my ancestors that I was in a new place she had managed to get a few of my ancestoral things from my hut and a few of my clothes. I guess this will do for now at least I was going to be happy here....
