Vanity…

I have seen people climb up the stairs into a plane; those in the economy class and those in the first class cabin. None is carried into the plane in a special way. Everyone climbs up himself.
.
And everyone in the plane is flown by the same pilot. Those in the first class cabin do not have their own special pilot. And when there is a turbulent weather, it doesn’t affect only those in the economy. It doesn’t consider those in the first class cabin. It affects the plane and everyone in it.
.
I have seen people drive cars worth millions of naira. And when there is a hold up, the car of the poor and the cars of the rich will be trapped in it because no one drives his car in the air. Everyone suffers in it.
.
I have seen the corpses of the rich in golden caskets and the corpses of the poor in wooden caskets. But none is buried in the sky. They are all buried in the earth. And all the corpses get eaten up by the same termites.
.
I have seen people who have it all but desperately seek happiness and fulfilment. I have seen those that have it not but are very happy. Oh! I have seen, seen it all to know that no mortal no matter how highly placed is too important. We are all guests to the earth and as guests, even the VIPs amongst us must leave when the party is over. And when it rains it pours on all of us because a similar fate awaits us all.
.
The World we live in is full of illusion.
Empty we came, empty we shall all meet with our Creator.

Vanity upon vanity is all vanity!
Nothing is worth raising shoulders for!! Remain Good with Love and above all, Do unto others, what you want them, to do unto you. I wish you all well.
