Short Story: A Mistake
What are mistakes? Your dictionary says that it is to understand wrongly, or to misinterpret. I am saying they are the errors you make after you have agreed to some sort of understanding with some one. My first agreement was to my parents and that’s for me the only true place any mistake could be made.
There are your parents thinking that you their child is going to turn out to be the very best child in the entire universe and there you are feeling like you are in the very best anyone can every be , and having no reason not to. Time after time people have come over to take a look at you and time after time you have also opened those tightly shut eyes, to sneak a peek at whom holding you.
As you grow you begin to understand more and your parents or the arms that were holding you all this time are not holding back on what ever it is that you nay ask for and that they know that you need, you may not understand it as yet, but they were once your size.
It’s by your graduating from one stage to another as you grow and understand, it is here that those mistakes are most likely become apparent. With the great parents, as a common reminder, in the process of keeping your contract with them, you will get certain memorabilia’s that will quickly remind you in the future, that just as you look up to those in charge of your life when something is not proper with you, like when you were hungry or wet etc. Well the same way you will have something to remind you that you were not keeping your end of the contract.
That is your main contract with your parents, one that’s to be kept through your entire life. Now I love to say this particular line, because it has always been true, and in every case that I have investigated through my own life, and I have certainly been around a few, it holds strong.
The day you turn you back on your parents , it's almost like turning your back on The Most High God, and you are doomed , you shall surely die!
Great parents, stays on you as often as they know they need to. They are the originators of the contract, so it remains on them to keep, keep it in line, and here is the line I am referring to: They themselves are also in a forever contract with their ancestors, and the true and highest one is none other that the Most High God!
A house divided can never stand! I am one who believes strongly in the sins of the parents, that it will continue to run its course until one of the children comes along and breaks that monotony in other words corrects the mistake. They would not only be doing the work of the Most High God, but saving themselves from being labeled a heathen.
If everyone in your family for generations, have been carrying on a tradition of hated, lets say they were “Racist” there is no better time and no better purpose, for you to grab hold of the reigns and see this as your time to shine and keep shining from that moment on to rid yourself and your family of that evil hatred. If your desire is to be a supposedly great human , how will you feel having an opportunity to let your light shine simply pass you by , while you continuing into infinity.
We were all born with our specific agenda already blueprinted in us; most times life places us in positions that we will never understand how we have gotten there. This is when you can realize that long before you arrived there were others hard at work preparing this position for you. When one becomes selfish and the only thing on his mind is money and power, after his demise you sometimes never hears about him and it’s up to some distant family member way down the line to put their great grand parent’s fortunes to some proper use. What use is you putting your parent’s and grand parent’s hard work to which use. Will they be proud of you? Have you broken the monotony, or are you just:
