There was the four of us
There was the four of us and we all belonged to one Man called Sammy...
Sammy is a generous man and he loves Dog, he had so many other dogs but myself Bin and Zim,Kim and Lim were the only brown puppies he had.He puts us in one basket while others were left in cages.
We enjoyed the basket because it keeps us close to each other and warm but one day Lim died and it was just me myself,Zim and Kim...
We looked so much alike but our eyes will always tell you which is which perhaps that was why Sammy calls us one funny name Samtidiots...
Life with Sammy is not what one has to imagine but it was obvious that we were not the only ones, there was a bigger dog called Buzz
No person shall be considered guilty until he or she is finally convicted by a court and the prosecution team need to prove and convince the court beyond a reasonable doubt that the accused is guilty.
We decided to leave Sammy because he wasn't taken good care of us, he is an animal abuser and we were never well fed,we looked malnourished and were all infected with parasites,we lived in a big house with a mighty compound but the dogs in the street, the puppies in the field all eat better than us, if you are not chained then you are in the basket, basket full of trouble so the death of Lim was a chance for our escape.
It was mid night and everyone was asleep, all the dogs in the house were sleeping, you have to eat to be agile so none saw us scale out the basket and made it to the fence, we had no strength in us but manged to find a way out, the darkness was something else but we walked passed through the shadows of death.
The longest journey in life is the journey to freedom but since every journey begins with one step,we must continue no matter the scale of dust and hips of sand,crossing the ocean and making it to the desert were all forms of bravery by three courageous puppies.
United we stand but disunited we will fail so we learned to stick to each other and when one is down,the others will either give a hand or words of encouragement,we continued this journey but with no destination is mind, all we know is that we must make it to somewhere so life goes on.
We were all doomed at birth though from different mothers yet we looked so familiar that one will always mistake us for one another but thanks for our eyes,God made them so.
I was so weak and began to regret why i left Sammy's house,this journey is leading us to no where so i have to go back even if you guys don't want to listen,it is been years and we are still walking with no rest and a place in mind.
The picture of us is like hell itself and there was no proof that we will ever make it or even come across help.This was not suppose to be an argument but a case to address so i see no reason why Kim had to take it personal.
The darkest moment of my life
The darkest minute of my life
The darkest hour of my life
The darkest day of my life
Life is what we make of it and how we make our bed so we shall lie on it, no one forced us into this journey, it was a journey for freedom but destination unknown.
If the future can be seen, i would have not embarked on this journey but what are puppies for and what are friends for?
We were suppose to watch each other;s back
We were suppose to be friends and stand as one
I could not believe it though Kim was the most stubborn of us, he is very difficult to predict but i never expected him to do what he did no matter how hungry he was besides we are all dogs and even the same breed.
I watched him jumped upon Zim and began biting its head, Kim bite Zim all over but there was nothing i could do as i stood speechless then the worst happened, he turned to it's face and crushed Zim's face with it's teeth.
What a friend i have
What a day for us
The end of Zim
The end of our journey
The end of friendship
The saddest day i know
I could not stand and have my face crushed like Zim's though i was very weak and had no strength to walk but i stood on my feet and made my escape, there was lots of energy in me because i have to live.
Kim's actions ignited the stored energy is my and i made my way,running like never before,running the fastest i could,all alone i made it to safety and here i am today telling my tale.
One thing about life is the ups and downs
But the fact is that the patient dog eats the fattest bone
I later saw Buzz when i was old
And he looked so young and cute
No matter how life treats you, no matter what you are going through, no matter the difficulties you are facing, in your relationship,marriage,work,family,school,etc. Always have it in mind that there is a way out and you can only find this way within yourself.
I found a home and a dear friend
His name is Faith
He is the mover of all mountains
Some time in my life i thought that the mountain was high
I believed that the road to freedom was rough
There was the four of us but i can account for myself alone
Nothing in life is too hard to achieve once we believe
Faith my friend is a force greater than knowledge and power
I didn't asked for power or praise by men
All i asked is for a good friend who will be there for me
Where is your faith?
Where is your Luck?
Where do you find solace?
Put your faith in God because he is the Force we need in times of trouble and tribulation.
