Bless up to all a mi Tambareen Fambily linky-linky an mi Mix Up massive.
No hitching roun ere, Mix Up time:
Raga I did have a so called friend a Yaad.She was living at a place off Red Hills Road, a real rough area. She used to sew fi mi. She was a b.... Raga. Shi woulda look wi man dem right in front a wi. But shi was a very talented dressmaker.
She had two girls. The older one, anice quiet little girl but her mother used to mistreat her so bad.It was a well-known DJ's child. Anyway, one day I tookone of my relatives to their house because she needed her to sew someting for her. Then the mother called the little girl to bring her something and it wasn't what she had wanted, so she left the room to get it.So miwhispered to mi relative say a di DJ child and shi gimmi a look an say "mi kno har, DJ pickney mi baxide! Later mi tell u." Suh when wi left shi tell mi say a nuh di DJ daughter, it was a well-known lawyer pickney. Right when shi said it I knew it was true.Raga, di little girl was di dead stamp a di lawyer.
Di lawyer is from ourneighbourhood and used to hang out at a little tenement yard down the street from mi house, even after he becamea lawyer. He was and still is friends with a dread whose mother owned the yard. The dread was the babyfather of the sister of the relative I had brought to get something sewn at the mother. The mother was living at this yardfor a little bit and the DJ was her boyfriend at di time, but shi guh gi the lawyer a little piece and found out that she was pregnant shortly after. So shi felt she had no choice but to give the belly to di man whey shi did deh wid.
The child was about 9 or 10 when I found out about this.Raga, u know seh my relative guh tell har sister seh shi saw the child and how much the child looked just like the lawyer, big forehead and all. And then the sister go tell the lawyer. The lawyer then guh visit the mother and saw the child and knew it was his and as a formality he did a blood test to confirm it. Shortly after he took the child to live with him. Memba seh all dis time di Dj thought the child was his and to this day I don't know how she explained it all to him. But I understood that the reason she mistreated the little girl like that was because everytime she saw the child shi knew shi messed up. It all turned out well in the long run because the lawyer tek im pickney and gave her all whey im lawyer money couda buy, nice home, good education an nuff travelling.
What a piece a Mix Up weh go roun an come roun, go up an come dung, go dung an come back up. It have a whole heap a twists an turns.
Me did have fi cut out an change several tings in order to protect di people involved, including yuh self, cause yuh did list out all di name dem. Additionally, mi know say di lawyer is super popular and extremely well-known an dat
woulda surely cause a whole heap a drama. And while me an him a nuh big-big fren like dat, I have had a few occasions where I had to deal with him, and, despite wa some people say bout him, I have found him to be a very pleasant person.
Now back to di mix-up.
Yuh know say it has always bothered me that wen it comes to children many mothers always get away wid a lot of awful tings. Wen a man disown him pickney wi cuss him an done him an deal wid him wicked - which they sometimes deserve. Cause we all know say nuff Jamaican men jus wukliss an careless an doan step up an mind dem pickney wen they should.
But we don't treat women the same way when they do things that cause pain both to children and to fathers. Specifically, we are conditioned to be extremely forgiving when a woman deliberately gi a man a jacket. In fact, in most instances we immediately excuse the woman by assuming is something bad a man do that cause har fi gi a man a jacket. But just as how some man careless an wukliss wen it come to pickney, a same way soh nuff woman tan! Sometimes di woman dem all worse!
Cause see it deh, because a di carelissniss a di mada, di DJ lived 10 years a him life believing he had a daughter, that he owned because the mother said it was his - only to have that daughter suddenly taken away. Dat must hot.
Where is the condemnation for what the mother did to him?
