Just a thin Line


By Andrew Israel Kazibwe

Pondering what it is, even as I type the first line and as I jot the last full stop… Its life, isn’t it- around and about it evolves, yet even when surrounded by ‘rich chemistry’, or physics it is- that defines it!
It is a ‘thin line,’ just line that of the human skin and the rest of that great, yet feeble body!!!

Life again places us where weren’t so or any different from each other, but just separated by a thin line, only a few take note of to reflect on the connection there is with the other side.

That line, so thin that separates life and Death, poverty from Wealth, ugly with beauty, sorrow from joy, that Pain from sorrow, young and old, dull from intelligent, night and day, master and servant, love from hate, holy from weak, one’s satisfaction from the other’s hunger, Promotion and demotion, educated from primitive, fertile and barren, the kind and ruthless, employee and Employer, pure from evil, then love from lust, triumph from defeat, the blind and deaf…

See, even when surrounded by it all, a cycle we all end up into, that even filled with disbelief, we can barely go of what seemed reality in the past; losing someone, running bankrupt, being amputated, failing that interview or exam, being dumped or disowned, cheated… Or say, why not?, passing that job interview of exam, winning a scholarship, finally saying yes to that proposal, finally receiving and holding that new life, winning a lottery, the first paycheck, winning a court case or being cured of that long illness…

Just into a thin line, life categories us into, that we evolve, live, yet rarely and barely meditate what this defines, or paints…Amazing how the cycle is endless, since limitless it is-so it spins!!!
