BARBADOS (Naked Departure) — Dear Naked Departure, I going blind. Naked, I married to the same man now for 35 years and I take a lot of bad treatment and I did hoping that he would see the love and come home at night and treat me right. Naked, I going blind.
Naked, the men round here don’t want no good woman. Them like them nasty. The nastier the better. I don’t know if he going blind for the same reason I going blind, but he can barely see heself. Naked, if I have this Syphilis, he had to be the one who give me it.
Naked, I thank you for being my voice today as I raise my hands up to the sky and pray the lord for his healing mercies. I served the Barbadian people with pride and honesty even when I could steal and could get away with it. I always held my head high Naked, and I taught at the best schools here on this island. But when I dead, people will not know what I went through. Living here ain’t easy and I get a little satisfaction when I read the articles here. Naked, you don’t lie ’cause whatever is here on this page I see with my own eyes living here in Barbados.
Well, my husband gave my Syphilis and didn’t say a word. I know he likes bulling but I was praying hard hard hard that he would find God.
Naked, I could tell you about my life and it would take a year. But when that person say they feel helpless living in Barbados, them didn’t lie. I know the feeling. It’s like a small jail. But Naked, thank you. You may not know this Naked, but you are a necessary part of this landscape. Just like they forsake Jesus, they forsake things that good for them.
I going blind Naked. This may be the last time I get to write cause I couldn’t see a thing this morning, but the good Lord know why he letting me see these keys to write. Thank you Naked. Thank you. I wish I had written more in my life. I wish I could live and see my grandchildren. Well, life is like that you know. Life like that.
I going here now. Thank you Naked. Anonymous
