And i saw STARS................

Everytime i annoyed my dad
all he did was pick up a paper pretend to read
then ask u to knock on the wall behind him
yea not door,wall till he could hear
i would do it for a few seconds,groan about my knuckles
and Papa would say-dont do that again
whatever it was.................


so when i got my first boyf-M
we were kidding around one day and he said i would give u the beating ur father forgot to give u
he was right on target
Papa never beat me
But Mama(another story)
and i remembered my first............

I spent the years 9-16 with my Gramps
Gramps youngest child(my Uncle)is 4 years older than moi(dad is Gramps eldest son)
thing is 2youngsters-what do u get?
sibling rivalry
or in our own case......uncle-niece rivalry
i liked to get the guy into trouble
anything he did and hid from Gramps
his best bet was i should not find out
else Gramps was sure to hear and the guy would be lashed and or punished
this had gone on for about a year
this day,apparently-dude was tired of my tell-tale attitude
soon after i reported and he had being punished for the umpteenth tyme
i went to tell him Grandma was looking for him
he said-ok but come,i want to give u something
i had forgotten ooooooooo-usually i avoid him for days
after any incident
soon as i got close enough

he just raised his hand-i wasn't thinking straight(i had never gotten one before)
and landed me a slap
i swear i saw STARS
u know when u watch a cartoon and they fall and see those birds,butterflies or whatever that fly across their eyes
i did see............little fireflies
i was shellshocked
i didnt even have it in me to go report the incident to Gramps
well he was praying and everyone knows noone dares disturb the guy during salat
i did tell Grandma though-who promised me heaven i dont tell Gramps
i never did tell Gramps especially when i remember Uncle promised me
i would get another if i told

i never got another
i stopped telling on him
peace reigned in our abode
