LIFE IS TRANSIENT.

| 8 Comments
Just yesterday, a friend of mine lost someone very dear to her and as expected, she has been broken, distraught, and inconsolable. Indeed, I do not know the deceased but the tales of him that have been told are overwhelming. He lived a purposeful life, dedicated to work, goal oriented, took his exercise routines religiously and never joked with his food – typical you will say. He was such a charming young man with massive prospects ahead. Although, I never met him, I am sure his curriculum vitae must be an enviable one. However, like every individual in Nigeria with a future brighter than the sun, the odds are more prevailing and dangers imminent threatening to cut lives short.


This young man, who like everyone else has a fundamental right to live and to be assured his life was not cut short through the government providing all to ensure his safety, was let down woefully by an unconcerned government – another norm if you ask me. As I was saying, on a bright afternoon with the sanity of men presumed to be at its peak, a lawless man had over sped his trailer in broad day light and turned the road into a racetrack. With a failed break and subsequently lost control drifting from his dual lane to that of another oncoming vehicle ramming into his car and costing Ladoja Adebola his life.


These tales of woes and immense sorrow of the loss of a life like many others this nation has negligently contributed to through their inefficient and ineffective system leaves a sour taste in my buds. Moreover, since I cannot do anything than hope and pray, I have decided to ask God for his mercies over us from the perilous terrain we find ourselves in where evil of any kind is never averted.


Similarly the mortality of men is more unquestionable and the world that we live in, simply transient. This could not have been more empirical than hearing of the loss of Maya Angelou – a literary icon, phenomenal writer who exuded immense intelligence and radiated immeasurable knowledge, beyond doubt a life changer whose works will forever remain indelible fashioning our lives in ways that history will forever bear observance to through testimonies and works.


As I sought to find meaning of all these happenings, the reckless killings, the abandonment of care by almost everyone, the attribution of self rather than the love of brotherhood; the words of the wisest preacher comes to mind “vanity upon vanity, all is vanity.” Notwithstanding, something lingers in my heart from all these. Something rears its head like a snake seeking vengeance before its demise in my thoughts and it captures the whole essence of the ideologies that I think life is about essentially. Truly, life passes like a flash; no wonder they say life is short but it is not how far but how well.


A life lived with the ordinates and dispositions to touch lives, to make an impact, to put a smile on another, to touch hearts, to care sacrificially for another, to cherish and to adore, creating moments and generating sparks; that is the human who will is remembered, the one whose moments will fill our lives when they are long gone. Honestly, to me, I am certain with no gram of doubt that the world we live is brief, human life dissipates like vapour making it all vain but the things we do, and the lives we touch lasts while the flesh is gone. The beautiful memoirs we paint in the lives of others remain unforgettable and that is all that counts.


I hope that everyone strives to live better, enjoy every bit of living and the grace bestowed on us to share in the beauty of the world.


I extend my deep sadness at the passing away of Mr Ladoja Adebola and I take solace in the fact that he rests at the feet of our Lord never to die again. May God grant his family and friends the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss. To Maya, you will forever live on in our lives and to all those who have lost someone special, live right for them, that is all we owe each other, a loving heart.
