It came like a storm
Everything was fine, everyone were happy only thing we heard was speculation about the war which we doubted. Everyday seemed like a holiday, every Friday the whole community celebrates, party, eat and drink.
No one saw it coming, no one saw the chaos coming, I and my friend Emeka were just 15 involved in something grown men wouldn’t want to experience.
Our country was so rich with natural resources, there was happiness, wealth, jobs, food, good education and anything good you could ever think of. I can’t believe we lost everything, all the natural resources have been taken away from us, sometimes I wish it was just a Dream.
I ask myself everytime I’m alone in the dark corner why we weren’t prepared for this war?
Why couldn’t we defeat them with tears rolling down my cheeks.
The war came like a storm upon us on a Friday while we were partying, busy enjoying the things we own, we tried to fight but it seemed like we were just too weak or unprepared I should say, the storm drove every property we had, every happiness, Wealth and riches we ever had. How could this happen? I can’t believe we lost everything. Emeka my friend used to tell me how he was scared that strange things could happen, I can’t believe Emeka was right. I told Emeka we have to fight back to get back our home, we have to go prepared and we have to take them unawares. In life we should always be prepared for stormy days as they could sweep off everything we worked hard to build. Being prepared with a mapped out plan will bring solutions to difficult times just like a company being prepared for future damages of its product will keep progressing.
