Periods Change Lives: Clueless Dad

An Original Poem Written by Yvonne Nyatundo – Maseno University

Daddy listen to me
Please listen
I barely slept last night
The pain was exhilarating
What is happening to me?

Daddy listen to me
Please listen
My abdomen hurts
It’s bloated
What is happening to me?

Daddy listen to me
Please listen
Boys laughed at me
When they saw blood on my skirt
What is happening to me?

Daddy listen to me
Please listen
My hips are broadening
Don’t you see?
What is happening to me?

Daddy listen to me
Please listen
You shook your head puzzled
Your expression clueless
What is happening to me?

Daddy listen to me
Please listen
I’m scared
I’m ashamed
What is happening to me?

Daddy listen to me
Please listen
You should know
I need answers
What is happening to me?

All dad’s please participate in the World Menstrual hygiene day (28th May, MH day) so as to be more knowledgeable on menstruation and evade such clueless moments with your daughters.
