Women chit-chatting about their husbands,
Children playing football with a deflated ball,
I stand afar, too scared to go any closer,
Lest I disperse the market.
I am like the masquerade that makes people take to their heels,
And yet, I have no whip nor am I covered in bamboo rafters,
Still, I must confess, the smell from my body is worthy of a run,
Please teach me, how I can run from myself?
I remain stuck in a body that has failed me,
Not my body's fault though; partially my fault.
I got married too early, got pregnant too early,
I had a stillbirth and now, I've got VVF.
My name is Aisha Ramon and I am 15years old.
Give hope to Aisha and other girls like her who are stigmatized by society due to the continuous involuntary discharge of urine
