Life of a stranger : Apostrophe

  When we hold each other, in the darkness, it doesn't make the darkness go away. The bad things are still out there. The nightmares still walking. When we hold each other we feel not safe, but better. "It's all right" we whisper, "I'm here, I love you." and we lie: "I'll never leave you." For just a moment or two the darkness doesn't seem so bad.

Ronke was a bright child, she had always been her mothers pride right for day one. Ronke was not just beautiful and lucky, she was brilliant too, if she was a precious stone, she would be a very rare diamond.
    After ronke left secondary school, she gain admission to study law in a prestigious university in her home land. She aced her law school exams and subsequently got a job in one of the best law firms. Ronke got married to her college sweetheart admist pomp and pageantry, everybody that matter was at her wedding ceremony, kings, governors. The wedding was covered by major news papers and magazines " match made in heaven", "Pilot weds lawyer" the headlines read. One can only imagine how happy her mother was " ronke my daughter is getting married,she is a lawyer".
       Barely a month that she got married ronke took in, she was more beautiful than ever, she looked like she had just stepped out of the magazine, she was every mother's pride " o ri bi ronke shey smart"( don't you see how smart ronke looks).
        Yesterday Ronke pregnancy was 8months old, the doctors told her she should expect her baby by the second week of may and of course the baby and mother are doing well(there was nothing to worry about),4 hours ago ronke died from a stray bullet, right in front of her house in the arms of her husband.
    Have you ever thought of when the end will come, how , or where? I do, and it bring tears to my eyes... Dead is inevitable no matter how talented, beautiful,nice, or rich you are. In the main time, be happy, LIVE! So when you die people would not just cry because you have died they would be able to laugh because you lead a good life.
