amaka,david & baby jackson (jackson family)

by ogoke kingsley

I have suffered loss before but this time around, a piece of my soul has been torn out of my chest because i just lost two friends to untimely death. Tears just flow each time i recall how i played football and walked to St. Agnes Catholic church with David back in 2001 at lagos...and as for Amaka, my heart ache with grief each time i visualise the innocent face of a girl whose determination to attend university inspired me to greater heights. Now i cant even carry her pretty baby anymore simply because life is unfair. Dear God I am deeply disturbed because David's humour is gone and Amaka's caring voice has vanished in such a cruel manner. However, Life they say goes on...but so does the pain of these deaths in my heart. In fact, at my best i can only get used to the pain because the wound can never heal. Amaka, I miss you and hope to meet you and David again to part no more. Rest in peace, in Jesus name
