THE DETER OF LIFE
What is in this world that one keeps suffering for? Are the sufferings worth the pains and agonizing moments and traumas we pass through every now and then? The name man is it synonymous to suffering or is it an acronym of it? Looking at man you see failures and disappointments all around him, such that you begin to wonder what the troubles are.
Was man at creation made for suffering? When he started was the situation like this or with a difference? What is amiss and what is it that should be done? Until these questions are answered, then there will be no way forward. How then can these questions be answered? Do they have solutions? Who is the solution giver to all the problems on earth?
Is suffering part of existence? For how long will it take to extinct it? When and who is going to do this? Long ago we have heard of it that the world is coming to an end but to date nothing has happened. Does it mean we will keep on suffering to infinity?
By the way who is the fellow that is going to come and take us away? Does the person have the power to upturn suffering? It is high time we redefine our being and know what to do before it is too late.
Whom have I quarreled with? Who on earth have I offended? What could be responsible for, these dehumanizing and retrogressive acts? In the morning I woke up with full force of life only to be slapped by the ugly side of the noon. With the strength and vigour of the morning, I thought I would scale through but the sunshine of noon quashed it with a distasteful sardonic slap. Despite that, hope was still expressed as the evening was still very much young in the offing awaited.
The food put on the fire in the morning refused to be cooked. The firewood refused to ignite and bring out fire. We are thirsty badly but the water all around is contaminated. The absence of water led to the intake of minerals but the sugar gored us. Here we are worse than we were before. What to do we do not know, neither do we know where to go.
Since the fire has failed to glow and the water remained contaminated we live on fruits. As we turned fruitarians, the land itself received its part of the evil baptism. It became barren and unfruitful. What has gone wrong?
Is this how we are going to live it all through our lives? Who can rescue us from these evil and dehumanizing situations of life?
