SHOCK TO SADNESS AND FINALLY TO HOPELESSNESS!

looks like a man who just won a lottery.
Jide? Guess what? / I’m home! /
Sarah took me back without a fuss.
/ And last night was like the old
days. / I won’t be surprised if
she’s pregnant already? / i’m home
alone. She must have taken the kids
to school. / Yeah. / Sure. / You
can come by later.
Then he sights an envelope on the table. His mood drops,
perturbed by the content he is yet to see. Slowly, he opens
it and begins to read.
By the time you read this, me and
the kids are gone! I gave you my
life, and you turned my dreams –
our dreams – into nightmares. And
for a long time, I thought my life
was over. But the kids gave me
hope. I reached rock bottom, but it
was all I needed to spring forth
with vigour. Now, I believe. I can
live again. And where you made me
feel weak, I realise how
unbelievably strong I am. Thank
you, Michael. You helped me reach
HATRED – A SERIAL RAPIST FINALLY CONFRONTS THE WOMAN HE
BLAMES FOR EVERYTHING
When you left, you took all of me
with you. I crashed to the
bottom…I hated you! For leaving
me! For killing me!
I needed an escape. So, one day, I
was at the airport when I overheard
a girl on the phone telling her
boyfriend off, rudely, because she
was going to the UK for a seminar.
Something snapped inside of me that
So, I followed her home. I robbed
her and raped her till the next
morning! It felt good! There was
this release. Like a purge. I
became hollow and with it came a
hunger with greater ferocity. I
went on a raping spree. I did it
ten, twenty times. But who is
counting? It was your fault. You
made me happy, then you crushed my
heart and made me a monster. Today
is the day you die. Consider it a
great compliment to be devoured by
your own creation!

Get on your knees!
LOVE – A TOUGH, BRUTAL MAN HAS HIS WORLD TURNED INSIDE OUT
I never knew love. To me, love was
a fantasy written into songs to
melt our hearts and float our
emotions through the clouds of
stupidity. I was ready to go
through life with that conviction.
Until you day you came into my life
and opened a whole new world of
possibilities to me. Now, I can
hear the lyrics in the song of
birds, the rhythm in the howl of
the wind, and the notes in the clap
of thunder! Even if you break my
heart, I will survive because your
love has gifted me with so much
vigour that I can go on loving for
a million years and not grow weary!
This love will live on beyond time!

HOPE AND JOY – A WISE MOTHER SPEAKS AT HER DAUGHTER’S WEDDING
Weddings! I love them. The coming
together of one alien Adam and an
enigmatic Eve, pitching a common
tent in an exotic Eden. The garden
need not be tended. It takes care
of itself. Oh, and the promises…
Grand pretensions or die-hard
assurances? No matter the sincerity
at the moment of declaration,
promises are meant to be broken.
And when they are, lives are
shattered. Forever! But today, let
them bask in the bliss of this
paradise. For tomorrow brings
