IF MY LIFE WAS SCRIPTED

I finished drinking the garri and Groundnut I bought with the last money with me.

Moving towards the sink, I kept the bowl and utensils in the basin and put on the tap to wash them.

Then I went back and sat on my bed.

I didn’t sit down for long when my stomach started making funny sounds.

Almost immediately, hot tears dropped from my eyes.

I laid down on the bed, sobbing profusely as I kept wondering why my life was like this.

I was once an undergraduate studying Medicine and Surgery at Obafemi Awolowo University.

I was at 200 level, writing my exams when I heard that my mum had died.

It was too much to bear as I knew my life had crashed already.

My backbone is no more, and there is nothing else I can do than be a dropout.

Painfully, I packed my load from school and headed back home.

I had to take up menial jobs to sponsor my kid sis, who was still in Secondary school, boarding to be precise.

Life has been hard for me; I eat wh@ťěver I see and do wh@ťěver job I see in as much as there would be paid for it.

It was during one of those crazy jobs I took that I got R@P£D.

Fortunately, I reached out to the police, who were kind enough to ensure the man was punished.

I was taken to the hospital, and the doctors attended to me. After several tests, I was assured everything was fine, but I was disvirgined, and the scan will forever be there.

Alone in the dark, cool room with no one to console me, I let out all my tears.

Then a thought struck me, what If my life was scripted?

What if, right when I was given birth, I would live my life how it was planned and laid down in the script?

Excitedly, I sat back on the bed, thinking of answering those questions.

Talking to one else but my thought, I said,
“Well, if my life were scripted, I would be glad. It means I will be freed from the burden of doership.

If it’s scripted in such a way, the first few years would be suffering, so the years to come will be filled with enjoyment, joy, and happiness.

I will enjoy life’s flow rather than changing variables to suit my personal preferences.

It will be easy when it comes to decision-making.

The choices and steps I take will be based on what is being scripted.

This life I’m living is hell on earth, and it would be good if my life were scripted in a lovely way.

I will be able to wear nice clothes and live in luxury, enjoying and appreciating the works of God.

I will be respected highly, and no one will dare question me when I take a step.

Then I will be able to know the particular time I will die and enjoy life to the fullest before then.”

I smiled sheepishly, still fantasizing about my thoughts, when my phone beeped, indicating I had a message.

I grabbed it angrily and glanced at it.

My face became sour as I read the content. It was a message from my kid’s sis, who urgently needed money.

Tears dropped again, and only one line rang through my head, just as IF MY LIFE WAS SCRIPTED.
