The sea that separates us
You know,i met him and we talked how to run things then agreed on splitting everything evenly but later i realized that he cannot commit financially because he was broke and was hiding the holes in his wallet but the zeal to kick start the venture blinded my instincts and i never saw his deceit until i wired the fund into his bank account.
His words were smooth like butter and sweet like honey, i thought that he was pulling the other side of the code as required but one month passed, then two, three and four but his stories kept changing. I didn't want to think otherwise but i called our intermediary and he assured me that the fella is not a corn man.
But he turned out to be a Smooth Criminal...
It still baffles me how people grow so wild and turn out to be cruel towards people that trust and respect them. Most times, some people forget where this race began and also that we are heading towards the same finish line. If it was a stranger, i would have understood vividly well but it was you, my dear friend, i humbled myself and served you when you visited but instead of shake the friendly hand i extended to you, you spat on it.
No one saw my pain, i didn't complain to the wrong person but you wouldn't heed to my long patience. Friendship is easy to build but a stab by a friend pulls down all the bricks, it hurts when someone you trust stab you at the back, you try to ignore it but the pain causes you sleepless night, you call him to order but he pays no attention then you are left to correct his follies.
Now i know why it is hard for some of us to let go, why it is so hard for some of to forgive and why when one stupid ingrate wake the sleeping beast, people begin to wonder what a beast thou art. My friend, this is an open call, a stitch in time saves nine. Though you can capitalize on the sea that separates us but justice is delivered anywhere because from all indication, you had it planned, you smiled at me and screwed me but forgot the fact that you ruin yourself when you betray a friend.
I know that men can turn out to be cruel but you see, i am one of those that stands firmly that people don't usually change rather it's the mask that falls out especially when they are half breed. I have the symbol of justice and you have awaken the beast though i will buy more time for the sake of humanity but do not ever take my kindness as a sign of weakness. Don't say that i didn't warn you.
