Then something happened.
Bode lost his dad.It was then i got to know dt d old man had
more one wife,as a matter of fact,he had four,one was late
already,and Bode’s mum was d last and d only one living with
him until he passed away.
Among d children from d other wives,only few of them were
educated,others were either bricklayers,drivers, carpenters,
tailors or petty traders.It was only Bode’s mum dt was
struggling to send her children to school.
She had three of them for d late farmer,Bode was d firstborn
with two kid sisters who were still in high school. D one next to
him was preparing to write WAEC when their dad passed away.
It was announced in d church n we (choir members) decided to
go n register our condolence with Bode n other members of d
On getting there,i was so touched by d way i saw d widows
sitting down on a mat,wearing black attire with bowls before
each of them where people who came to sympathise with them
I said within me “if ds kind of a thing should happen in my
lifetime,i will NEVER allow my mum to be treated ds way.Ds is
humiliation in d highest order..Did these women conspire to kill
Well,we greeted them.I didnt even know what to say,as i never
experienced such before.As d leader,i summoned courage,knelt
down beside Bode’s mum and whispered into her ear “God will

She said “Thanks my child.I really appreciate u”.
I gave her an amount of money on behalf of d choir.
She accepted it,appreciated us,n we left.
When i got home,i couldnt stop thinking about d woman. Oh!.She
was so young. Why did she marry a polygamist?,a man old
enough to be her father?.
There must be a reason.
Whatever d reason may be,i felt for her.She’s such a beautiful
Never!.I can never go for dt kind of a man,i will never allow
any stupid love to blind-fold me.
I can not even marry anybody
from dt kind of a family,see their house,d moment i stepped
into d compound,i could vividly smell poverty. Where would i tell
my dad i found dt kind of a man?
.Me?.I even trust myself..i’m
more than dt.
Then my mind went to what Pastor Mrs Williams told me d day
she said she heard a rumour about Bode n i.
1Cor 10:12…..wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take
heed lest he fall.
Fall?.Fall for where?.Falling is only meant for those who dont
stand well.Me,i cant fall, i trust myself.
I’ve been keeping
myself since n i will continue to keep myself,i’ve determined dt
no man shall see my nakedness except my husband,n dt wont
happen until after marriage. That is it! While talking to myself in ds manner. I slept off. Then something came up.
