My first happiness
I was pregnant
Rasheed, my husband, was pleased
He wanted a boy to replace the son he had
The son that had drowned
He was careful with me
He took me to the bath house once
I lost the baby and every child after that
Rasheed hated me for it
The beating started
Nothing was right
I tried so hard.
