Religion and or faith teaches us to always pray for our today to be better than our yesterday…..just as we pray or wish that our tomorrow should be better than our today….But is this realistic given our present experience? Are we being truthful to ourselves given our changing world? Or are we merely living in dreams and fantasies?
● YESTERDAY, it was a taboo to talk gay, lesbian or homosexuality….TODAY we are talking transgender having successfully legalised gay and lesbianism.
●YESTERDAY, abortion was a scandal and big shame….TODAY, those going for abortion are applauded and even honoured…..
●YESTERDAY, outrageous dressing is seen as offensive…..TODAY, we dress half naked if not totally naked. We wear rags and accorded the front seats even in places of worship.
●YESTERDAY, we cursed thieves….TODAY, we hailed them and treat them as Kings and Queens. We vote for some of them as leaders….
●YESTERDAY, we condemned the local parlance “wayo” meaning deceit, fraud and trickster etc…..TODAY, it has graduated and metamorphosed into 419, Yahoo and still growing….
●YESTERDAY, we played under the moonlight as children with our parents busy with what parents do at nights…..TODAY, for fear of the unknown, we drag our children inside in the evenings….forcing them to learn and know just what we know alone
●YESTERDAY, kidnapping was forbidden….TODAY, Kings, governors, policemen, soldiers and professors are victims….
●YESTERDAY, clerics come to places of worship just with the holy books….TODAY, they come hanging AK47 on their shoulders
●YESTERDAY, we marry with just background check of both families….TODAY, we go for spiritual deliverance plus medical examination in forms of blood test and genotype ……Yet, we go for DNA to ascertain the real “fathers of our children”.
●YESTERDAY, top jobs with choice cars and quality homes await undergraduates with best results as they come out of universities….TODAY, best graduating students end up in polling booths as election agents after which they return home as liabilities to parents and families full of regrets.
●YESTERDAY, we ate real foods that gives us health to grant us longevity of life….TODAY, we eat poisons of all colours, makes, forms, shapes and sizes from all corners of the globe….and from people attempting to deliberately reduce the world’s population….
●YESTERDAY, we said a celebration of life to a man or woman died at the age of 110 years…..TODAY, at 60, it is a life well spent for as long as the deceased was very rich or members of his or her family are.
I dare ask once again, is yesterday better than today?
