After he read my post on Fast love ( not first) I asked him what he thought about it. ” How could you be so stupid to fall for lies.” That’s what he told me in many words. I felt really bad, I still feel bad about that comment. Thought to write as below.

I was too easy to convince, he says
Stupid to say yes, fell for lies.
How would I know lies
When I had never seen before
Should I blame family for being honest
Teaching me honesty
That I never knew dishonesty
And when it happened
I trusted for that’s all I knew
To trust and nothing else
Maybe I am gullible
Wanted to believe
How would anyone make all that up
Naive is what you’d call me
It takes a thief to know another
I ain’t one how could I know one
And so fell for all the stories
Gullible- too willing to believe
Easy to trick, says Oxford
The word exists
Perpetrators n victims must too
I victimize myself in this

Recently in Kenya we’ve had cases of ‘parallel’ families showing up at funerals of famous men. Families that no one knew about. Most of them were public figures. We thought their lives were public knowledge. Shock on us when women showed up at their funerals with kids same ages as those of the ‘official wives’.
What about that successful lawyer who had two families in two separate towns and none knew about the other. How did he even manage career, family one, family two and the travels in between. The lies that he told!!!
Guess am not the only one who is gullible.
Atleast for my case I was young.
