WEEK THREE: PATIENCE IS LIFE by Olumide Olanrewaju
"If only I can make it big immediately and be a lone wolf billionaire", he thought. Gradually he influenced another man, the unspoken words made some of them to withdraw. The belt was slacking; the weaklings were dropping out. The strongest said “My time will soon be up, I’ll soon be removed, burnt or broken to serve another purpose; I won’t be here forever, but I need a courageous successor to do his best and raise another till a new method is available”. Unfortunately, the agile successors grew wings before their eggs hatched. They said “The strongest is always the first to be taken; we can’t sacrifice ourselves for another cause.” The remaining “rejected stones” tightened the belt and continue to serve their purpose.
Not quite long, the prodigal sons scattered abroad, wandering in pieces. Men kicked them, disposed them, broke them for fun, and used them to satisfy their lust. They never made it back, those that did couldn’t fit in again; alas men left the strongest to feast on them first.
While the patient sticks were feeling bad for the fallen soldiers, a meshing broom also made from twigs hanging close to the cutleries said “Be happy, they dip me into hot soups almost every day, DO YOU KNOW WHY I’M ALWAYS HAPPY? MY NAME IS PATIENCE AND MY BROTHER “THE DAY” IS DOWN THERE ON THE STREET LOOKING FOR ME, I CAN SEE HIM JUST BECAUSE I DIDN’T DROP DOWN TO YOUR LEVEL OUT OF CURIOSITY”.
The next day, brooms with bristles were made.
BE “PATIENCE”; REMEMBER “THE DAY” IS COMING
