KYAU – BY JANNA ONYEMAOBI

My name is Kyau, meaning beautiful. 
I don’t see why my parents named me such.
I don’t see the beauty in me.
My tribal marks looks like they were drawn out of anger, 
I can’t even place a shape for my head. 
My nose looks like they have been stepped on a thousand times. 
Let’s not even talk about my body shape. 
I’ve heard most African names are given according to situations surrounding birth.
if that’s the case, then why am I called Kyau?
Students at school make fun of me. …….
They keep saying my parents named me based on there hopes. 
The guys at school never gives me a second glance. 
It’s more like I’m invisible. 
I’m like an artwork done based on frustration. 

Whenever I try asking my parents the reason for my name 
They would always say 
“To us, you’re beautiful. Don’t listen to what others have to say “
But then…..
How do you expect me to turn a blind eyes and pretend to be deaf. 
Why would God create a person to look like the way I do.
