BBC Chief International Correspondent Lyse Doucet say:
Even after 40 years of war, I no tink say Afghans don live through transition wey dey uncertain, wey dey like dis wey darkness fear surround. Pipo no certain of wetin dey front.
Uncertainty and fear dey for di thousands of Afghans wey don comot di kontri in di last few days wey dey wonder weda dem go see dia homeland again.
For di 38 million Afghans wey remain for di kontri, e no clear which kind of rule di Taliban go impose. If weda dem go bring back di harsh rules and punishments wey follow di last time dem bin dey in charge of di kontri.
Many Afghans dey look di Taliban rule for rural areas and dey fear say dem neva change, but somehow, dem don even even worse.
Dis na correct traditional society. Women and girls bin gain small amount of freedom as di Western coalition forces bin encourage education. Di greatest losers be di girls wey come of age in di past 20 years wey believe now say dem no fit to live di life dem promise dem.
Tomorrow go start di next chapter of dis long war. America longest war don over, but di battle for Afghans never over.
