#WriteRight. Dominique: Karma




Nnanna watched as the young girl reached up to kiss her boyfriend goodbye. Somehow, he just knew something had gone down in the sheets. His mind took him down memory lane. Those days of plucking the unripe mangoes and eating them with salt. 'Chai!, he thought, "I've lived life o. Wetin man no enjoy?" He smiled, walked to his car and drove off...thinking of the girls he made cry, the girls he interchanged with his friends, the ones he refused to marry because they weren't virgins, the line of girls foolish enough to have fallen for his wiles and graced his bed, his long list of 'used and dumped girls'. "Those were the days men", he thought, smiling. "Thank God I have a decent daughter".

He reached home, got down from his car and walked into the house....only for him to see Uju on the sofa with Bolanle on top of her, writhing. With the strength of a boar, he ripped Bolanle off and laced him with blows, screaming "How dare you defile my daughter in my house! You idiot! I will teach you today". Uju rushed into her room to get herself covered while Bolanle got on his knees admist the punches begging, "Oga, no vex. No vex Oga. I no go do am again. Na mistake. No be first knack am sef. Na Jide tell me say Uju dey give am free, say make I go try my luck. I no no say you go vex Oga."

At this point, Nnanna was as angry as he was embarrased. That his own precious Uju was like the foolish girls he straffed those days....and even worse. And he heard the sweetly annoying voice of his conscience whisper to him, "Bros, calm down. You don do your own. Make little bros do too. No be only you come this world to enjoy jare. No be only you waka come". 

And he asked himself, "Is this what Karma looks like?".

Hehehe. He who has ears let him hear! 

But I can't help wondering, does Karma really exist or does it just arbitrarily pick and choose? I ask because I have a list of people it's missed...

      We are all products of our parents and their lineage and this includes both their good and bad traits. Being a female doesn't exempt me from taking some traits from my dad. The same for sons and their mother's.

  22. Nice story... I just feel the turn of events were kinda rushed and surreal. That said, karma does exist but not in the way many people expect it to happen.

    From what I have seen happen to people, Nnanna doesn't need to have a wayward daughter as his karma, it might just be that the lady never gets to be taken serious by any man...just as he didn't take any lady serious.

    The moral of this story however is that we should always strive to do good; karma or not, it pays to be good.

  25. I believe Karma exist, though it's payback often happens in ways one cannot predict. But then, there is grace...

    1. Been wondering. What if the man gave his life to Christ and raised his kids well, will grace save him from the aftereffect of his past?

    2. I think it will. Karma ends where grace begins.

      Delete
    3. Sure! That's why it is called grace...it has to be undeserved.

      Delete
    4. That's a very good question anon.
      Personally I think it's unfair for children to suffer the sins of their parents...
      Although the bible says that in Exodus 34 v 7, Numbers 14 v 18....

      But it also says this in Deuteronomy 24 v 16, Jeremiah 31 v 29 - 34.
      Ezekiel 18 v 19 also talks about the son being saved if he follows the statues of God.
      So anytime I pray... I hold the above scriptures that talk about not reaping the evil fruits your parents have sown.

      The man giving his life to Christ doesn't necessarily absolve him from the consequences of his sins. You can't mock God. Whatsoever a man soweth, that he shall repeat. But God would have mercy on whom he would have mercy upon. And his ways are not our ways.

  34. Though I don't really believe in karma but I know that whatever you sow that you 'll reap. However, it's the lenght of time from the sowing to the reaping that some times is of great concern to the oppressed.

    Just like Chrisyinks has implied: yes, there's Karma but there's Grace, and everytime Grace cancels out Karma. Karma doesn't come in a way we all expect it to. A Pimp can have a responsible generation whether he's obtained Grace or not.

    4. A pimp,just like someone working in a tobacco,alcohol,condom or gun manufacturing company is just another hustler or a career path. Nothing to do with grace or karma or etc.

  58. Lol. Karma at Work. Please keep off.

    But I don't think it has anything to do with genetics. Its just about character and probably upbringing.

    If the girl detested the character of her dad, she would frown upon on any similar behaviours portrayed by any member of her clique (talk less that coming from a stranger) and see to it that she dissociates from him/her.

    She saw nothing in it so I would rather just say the man was "unlucky" to have such a child.

  59. Its not genetics, it character. Some daughters would put a stop to such acts or try as much as possible to distance themselves from the character of their father.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised.

Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrΓ©e comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrΓ©e is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!
