"Just like I said, If I am no more please hold my family especially my mum and dad responsible. I have tried to be the best I can be, Stayed away from them just because they blame me for their mistakes and they cant love, help and take care of me like their own.
"My mum has made life a living hell for me only because she is bipolar and frustrated. Accusing me of being a witch, trying to bill her and being a cursed child even though my brother is responsible for my education and upkeep.
The only thing she helps me with is my feeding money. I have gone out of my way to take care of my mum by giving her food and money but I still end up being her problems. My brother cant stick to his promise anymore best he feels I am not his responsibility and I have my own family. I hope and believe that now that I am gone, It will bring them relieve and happiness.
"I am so sorry Collins, I had to leave you this way, Maryam Olayemi you have been more than a bestie to me. I am also sorry to all my friends and well-wishers, I love happy but I’m nothing but a broken child. I don’t believe in God anymore, cos I cant see my purpose anymore.
I Love you all so much.
