Whop! Thirty one with six other figures behind it? That’s a huge sum of money when converted to naira. With this, I could get myself established for life; put myself through school, start a business to keep multiplying the figures, reach out to the needy and perhaps be one of the few committed to making the world a better place.
How? How could I let that slip off my fingers like that?
This could change my status, elevate my worth and make me of much value to the society.
Why? Why did I miss this opportunity to be repaired and to repair others?
What? What would I tell the beautiful heart that gave me this cheque?
Who? Who do I blame for this costly mistake?
I was complacent. I failed to be intentional. I had it all in my hands and I hoped it remained. Just a little slumber and it was all gone.
Would I ever forgive myself? If I did, would my parents ever forgive me? Just in case they do, would my generation overlook it?
How? How foolish can one be?
Enough of the regrets, the beautiful heart says. Here’s another cheque – exactly the same amount. I hope you’ll be intentional this time.
Yes I will. I’ve learnt my lessons – to value time than pleasure, to value time than money, to invest time for the betterment of the world, to invest time for the reward of eternity.
What! What fool I would be to allow another thirty one million seconds slip away with no footprints in the sand of time!
