Lost in snow
Sometimes when I am on a bus, or train, suddenly, I feel.......lost. I look out of the window, aand I see houses, beautiful quaint houses with chimneys and I imagine the perfect family inside. Mum, Dad, two blond kids, a plate of ginger cookies, milk, dog lying by the fire, post-card experience. I imagine this and suddenly I see the opposite, I see Warri, Enerhen junction, the market at Effurhun, and I think to myself........what the hell am I doing here? I think about this for a second, and I panic. I wonder if I have made the right decision, leaving Nigeria, the country which for some darn reason won't leave me. Yesterday, as I was coming home from the gym, it started to snow a lot! I was happy, I was singing and skipping in the snow when suddenly......I saw Warri! I laughed hysterically because at that moment, if only for a second, I was totally and completely lost.
