We started the journey of life in the womb of our mothers.
They carried us along for several months. As the final month gets to an end, the flight with which we traveled by, alight us to this unknown place called earth.
Our arrival to this unknown place has become a great mystery to me and I alone. We came to this earth holding absolutely nothing. Ooh, what kind of journey could this possibly be? We came to this world knowing nothing.
We then started to learn the culture's of the people we came to meet here on earth. We learnt how to eat their food, how to speak their language and many more but deep down in our hearts we sometimes feel we do not belong to this very place.
In fact we see ourselves as strangers here and we sometimes feel the need to go back home from where we really come from.
Our arrival to this place gave us the opportunity to meet people of different lifestyles, values and many more.
Some of these people are fun to be with, some are serious and some are damned naughty but we learn to adapt and live with them in harmony.
As the years begin to fade away, we tend to develop ourselves to fit in the various societies we find ourselves.
In trying to develop ourselves, we go through several processes that change our level of understanding and reasoning. We sometimes sit down and cast the net of our minds into the sea of wisdom of the experienced ones living around us and in doing so, we tend to catch for ourselves patience, love, forgiveness, humility, respect and so on.
All the above values hunted from the sea of wisdom, help to mould us into prominent individuals in the community we find ourselves and the country at large.
After developing ourselves, we tend to reap the fruits of our labour. We gain for ourselves fame, wealth and a family.
Due to the growth and improvements we've gained in the previous years, we then tend to live a life of fulfillment and we sometimes fail to realize the fact that, the world is not our home and we are only strangers living on this earth.
After acquiring all the material things you and I could think of, we tend to insure them against any unforseen circumstances but we fail to realize the need to assure our lives for eternal life in our real home.
Do you know God had placed man on a free morale? We are free to do whatever we feel like doing here on earth.
Some of us have chosen to walk the broad way and others have also chose to walk the narrow way. We are able to do all these things by our own free will. Hmm, what then can I say? We are just as free as a bird flying all around the world. The path we choose to trend here on earth will tell where exactly we will find ourselves when the angel of death knock on our doors.
Those of us who lived our lives just like the vulture will be left with nothing but bad and horrible report unlike those who lived their lives as gentle as a dove will have a good report to deliver to the maker of the universe.
Upon all the wealth we may have acquired, the popularity we may have gained, the names we may have made and families we may have formed, when the cold wind of death sweep over us, none of these things will be given to us to continue our journey to the spirit world.
Our fame, wealth, name and family will be left behind leaving us with absolutely nothing. Hmm, can't you see it...?
Aww, we came to this world holding nothing and we shall go with our empty hands but there is a life assurance for those who chose to walk the narrow way.
