HAVE YOU EVER FELT LIKE A FOOL BEFORE?

Sounds strange, isn 't it? To ask if you 've ever felt like a fool before. Have you ever felt so disheartening with your heart splitting into pieces or shred into fragments over a situation you can 't explain how it came about? You see others do all the wrong things but have amazing results to show for it yet with all your goodness and apparels of integrity, there is no evidence to show you have the backing of providence.

The path Wale Soyinka followed was quite different from that of Achebe 's and Late Prof. Dora Akunyili 's. Whatever God has assigned for you has a particular path you need to follow to achieve it....the path could be wide or narrow, it could be rosy or filled with pain, it could be famous or outright shameful, it could be stricken with poverty or bound with affluence.... no one has the right to chose his / her path.

I still reiterate my question....."Have you ever felt like a fool before?". Especially when you know you always stand for what is right, invest your very best in pursuing a particular endeavour but the outcome totally beat below your imagination. If you haven 't yet, I bless God for you. As for me, I 'm feeling like one as I write this....Am like one whose healing wound is injured afresh But my solace rests on the fact that in due time, "THE END DEFINITELY WILL JUSTIFY THE MEANS" because the Earth is of the Lord
