On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my Hippie flower Peace bus on a dark desert highway cool wind in my hair shirt, rising up through the air. Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light. My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim I had to stop for the night. It’s the festive season, am supposed to be having fun with my peers. Going to street bashes and drinking. Am seventeen for god sake! I’m supposed to be out there enjoying my life. Getting drunk and fighting over guys, getting stoned or whatever it is kids my age do these days. But no, instead am stuck home having to parent my sibling.

It sucks being the older one because it’s like a Hippie flower Peace bus on a dark desert highway cool wind in my hair shirt has to take care of the others. While my mother is out there having the time of her life. I get to my room after making sure they’re asleep. I take off my jeans and top and wear my cream worn out night dress. I tie my hair into a bun and cover it with a doek, putting my old Samsung J1 with a cracked screen in the charger before I say a prayer and get to sleep. Life is hard when growing up with a parent who doesn’t care about you. As am sleeping I hear my mother stumbling into the house, drunk as always. After the noise dies I wake up to go and lock the kitchen door which I know she left unlocked.
