How have you been pulling up with the weight of the earth? How often have you smiled lately or made anyone smile. Don’t bother to inquire, I’m not doing great, I’m terribly unfine. And thats why I have written to you today. Is it just me or I think the world is a terrible place and should be a better place if you paid more attention to our welfare. Sometimes, I feel so dejected and helpless, many times, I grumble and complain about certain things and as crazy as it seems, I’m often times disappointed with you. Why are you so careless with such a huge responsibility?
Why have you ruined everything? This wasn’t the initial plan, was it? It wasn’t your plan to keep the poor unhappy and the wealthy too happy. What happened? Why have you neglected the plight of the innocent and recognized the laughter of the guilty. Why do some work hard but earn no return or profit? Why are many fruitless? Have you made it a hobby to make and watch individuals cry? Why are you so unbalanced? You’re heavy on one side and light on the other, sharp at one edge and blunt at the other, hard at one side and soft at the other, sane at one time, insane at another.
You quote justice is the last hope for a common man but you can’t facilitate that for them. Why has the just been tagged unjust despite their good deeds? Why has the unjust become the judge of the just? Aren’t you a crazy unjust thing? The Democratic system begs for your attention but you trample upon their request. The voiceless are finally making speeches but the unfair world has made you hear only echo’s of silence. Why have you given up on us?
Each day you lead the faithful defenders of our countries to war and you return unaccompanied. What have you done with them? Terrorism has it owns mind now and its rapidly growing in Africa and I’m freaking out? Gunshots were barely heard in the 80’s but in my generation, its as frequent as a drumbeat. You must be familiar with the band of terrorists called “Boko Haram” and other groups of terrorists all over the world. As hilarious as they may look, they’re spitefully wicked. You should be impressed and proud of their activities and bloodshed because if you aren’t, you should have done something to stop them? How many more of our cities would be nuked? I’m literally frightened by everything and everyone around me. You were supposed to save us! Why didn’t you?
I should be moving on greatly with my education and academic process but a severe pandemic ruined it all. How on earth would anyone see that coming? The complications at child birth has become more severe and the world is rapidly growing irregularly. Literally everything is cancerous and weirder cases of cancer and other diseases and infections are diagnosed daily. I’m certain those weren’t in existence until recently. Shouldn’t you be responsible for that?
Here in Nigeria, the population is doubling up by each year. The planet is over populated, twice the usual quantity of food supplies are consumed and thrice electricity demand. Hunger, starvation and more death cases are recorded daily and if anyone isn’t concerned about that, I am. Suggestions to let scientists handle our food supplies have been made and that has been the most ridiculous suggestion in the history of suggestions.
Should I tell you about morality? Morality holds no value to anyone anymore. Our mainlands and islands are filled up with offensive people who wouldn’t care if they murdered anyone. More cases of sexual immorality and assaults are being reported, children and babies aren’t left out in these cruel act too. Shouldn’t you provide a remedy to all this? Tolerance and patience has been ignored by majorly everyone. Trust your neighbor to some extent and you would be betrayed like Judas betrayed Jesus. Why are you ruining the world?
I’m completely bewildered and I continuously debate on certain issues like the occurrence of such heartless, violent and strange activities. I wonder if we should be blamed for all this or should you be responsible? I have lots of questions concerning the present time that I would love to ask you but that would mean I have to write for days and weeks.
I really hope you have answers to my questions because I need them. The world needs these answers before our time elapses. To be honest, I’m unaware of your plans to solve this problems and I intend to know. What are you going to do about it? Do we have a role to play in all this? I would love to know because I am desperate for a better world and life. I will be patiently waiting for your reply because I am really disappointed in you. Do something quick, come up with solutions and save the world. Goodbye.
