    “Life is nothing more than an illusion;
    Life is a story told by an idiot; full of noise and emotional disturbance;
    But devoid of meaning” – William Shakespeare (Macbeth)
    . . . Nanga . . .
    Why did the driver leave his lane? Why and how?
    Something weird and more; must have happened . . .
    However whatever happened, happened; this is very sad.
    ……………………………………
    . . . Saddest is the fact that . . .
    Some or all of them may have carefully lived their lives;
    . . . being faithful to their girlfriends and wives;
    . . . avoiding prostitutes for want of more life;
    . . . saying NO to unhealthy habits, for want of seeing more days and nights;
    . . . making big plans for tomorrow, hoping they would still be greeted by the next days’ light;
    . . . working hard in life and always wanting to get it right;
    Only to die, as young and “easily” as this? A aaaaaaaaaaa . . . .

    Indeed “Time; is a savage” – Sangie (Ndangozizidwa video)
    ………………………………….
    Wise therefore, is the one . . .
    . . . who, regardless of paucity, prosperity or youthfulness; is always ready, now and ever;
    . . . having realised that life and death are balanced on the edge of a razor;
    . . . For one minute you are alive, but the next you are alive, never;
    . . . just like money, life is nothing but meaningless words written on a worthless piece of paper;
    And everybody should therefore always be ready and never afraid to meet his/her Maker.
    . . . Coz, “Our birth is nothing but our death begun.” – Edward Young
