It has always been there.
From the beginning through the middle ages to what seems like the end.
Man has always had the zest; the desire to be greater than what he is.
The zeal to make an impact.
The hope that he would one day rule his world. And he would fight for it. Down to his last breath. We never want to lay down and die forgotten; No. We want to dominate and triumph. But then, that’s what was imputed in our DNA. We are but kings and queens in our respective fields. Or at least, we should be.
I live everyday in awe at the failures of life. I also admire the successes, don’t get me wrong. Its the failures that however fascinate me.
How is it possible to be wired to do something and then do exactly the opposite?
How is it possible for a dog to meow when barking is it’s creator’s manner of distinguishing it?
Why do we have the low class, middle class and high class hierarchy when we were all created in one God’s image? One image, not multiple images. One.
These are questions I ask myself everyday. Every time I see beggars and hawkers chase after exquisite cars with their owners in defiant illusion that they exist. Every time I see a famished youth tread in the dust after failing the oral interview for the job in that company he so craves.
All I have are questions and more questions and I’m left to wonder if I’m gonna get an answer to any of them.
If indeed we are wired to dominate and excel, why do
some ‘the majority’ fall by the wayside and very few make it to Canaan?
Are we cursed?
Are we tampered with?
Do we live false destines or are we missing a detail so tiny it crumbles the entire dominoes of life?
All these questions I can’t provide answers to and I’m sure a lot of people can’t themselves but some can and I’m hoping you’re one of them.
So help me and help others.
Its a known saying that the poor get poorer and the rich get richer. I believe this pertains to the world of knowledge also.
