It is so unfortunate that Human being tend to live today as if they will not die tomorrow. And Of a truth, Death is closer to Humans than the air they breath in. Certainly, the cord of death with Human can never be broken neither it’s persistent occurrence can be concealed.
It means a little to Human to subject the globe and all it contains as the maximum wages to be spare a life so he can glamorously dine in perpetual unalloyed comfort of the earth.
Sooner after they’ve caused more harm in the fight of their life not to be curtailed, pensiveness will wear them and their facial expressions will be pitiable.
The comedy part is, While humans are antagonist of death, Death on the other hand sees human beings as his best friends whom he owns routine visits for migration to a rugged abode for which no one can convincingly define his/her fate.
Flattering Opportunities have made many of us to drive our heart from the imagination and believe of death closeness to humanity. A lesser description of death and human relationship can be summed up relatively on the bridge of shoulder-shoulder.
The people of the world have forgotten that the present secured voluminously in a non-legit manner, will definitely yield a payback in proportion to the weight of the evil committed.
Then, after death had stroked human, their titles, weapons, wealth, fame, and any other achievement that bring forth to them integrity, respect or global recognition will gradually but definitely fade and be forgotten until no one will think or recall of their precedented existence. If this is a lie, what is the name of your 50th grand father or even 40th? This means that many persons have come and gone. Unarguably, they were all taken away by death.
Sometimes we thought whether the great grand fathers of ours were weak, powerful, rich, poor, informed, unformed, respected, ridiculed, generous or dangerous. Indeed, the above hypothesis can never figure out reality neither can it portray an exact assumption.
The dynamism and irony of Human being is that, they commit evil to be spare a life, they commits more to be spare and even commits more and more just to escape the transcending to ‘land of see me no more’. Meanwhile, the misery of Death is that no sacrifice or any special reason can make him add a second when the appointed clock rings.
Indeed, Human being are devil, the devil commit evils and the evils committed create more branches that can easily drive Humans to their unfamiliar mansion beneath six feet.
Today, I’m telling the world that an evil done against human being are evil done against God. Therefore a quality life is not of longer years we lived actually, but of impacts and legacy we’ve planted within the years of living. This means that one whose name can’t be remembered or referenced after death was never successful, he or she only enjoyed some pleasures of life.
Mind you, Death is a special creature that it’s duration of strike and purposeful assignment can never be predicted nor forecasted.
The interesting part of the reality of death and humanity, is that the oppressed are seasonally relieved of their pains, injustice, & humiliations. Oh! These are shackles of inhuman. Death keeps warning Humanity everyday to live a good life by striking down their age mates, friends, relatives or even children but yet, human being aren’t conscious enough. Naturally, When the activeness or often remembrance of death is planted in human being, evil doings will be totally controlled. But, for what ever we do or achieve whether legitimately or via swindling on the toes of the silent, death is the last victory of Every living soul.
