Not Every Tunnel Has Light At The End Of It-Life Is A Gamble


Not Every Tunnel Has Light At The End Of It-Life Is A Gamble

Growing up was one of the most difficult periods of my life as an orphan. I lost my mom at a very tender age, and things didn’t quite work out as expected. My dad did all he could to raise me without the much needed affection from a mother. I had to learn virtually everything I know today the hard way. I had to start washing my clothes, taking my bath, brushing my teeth, and even cooking at a very tender age as there was no way I could leave my dad who was working at that time with all the domestic works.

Dear readers, the short description you just read were the story of my early childhood. Things didn’t quite start brightly, but I grew up thinking that light was eventually going to shine at the end of my tunnel. More than two decades after I am still waiting for that light to shine but hope seems to be fading by the day. Why does life treat some people well and others cruelly? Are my suffering pains and disappointments as a result of the choices I made while growing up or those of my parents?

I have used all manners of ladder and steps to see if I could have a glimpse of the light daddy told me about while I was growing up, but there seems to be no sign of it anywhere. I am 43, and still trying to settle down with no job and no hope of a better, brighter and rewarding future. Life is a steep and there is no end in the slide I have been making since my childhood days. It’s been one bitter pill after the other and one disappointment after the other.

Can someone please tell me if witches possess power to change a man’s destiny? If they have the power to change people’s destiny, then are there no witches in the families of Goodluck Jonathan, Okonjo Iweala, Olusegun Obasanjo, Ibrahim Babangida, Raji Fashola and the rest of them? Why are some stars brighter than the others?

Life for me has become a quagmire with no route of escape and hope for a better tomorrow. I have been waiting for the light at the end of my long tunnel, but it looks like the wait is endless for some while the same cannot be said for others.
