A Walk On The Wild Side.

Some of us will never have the chance to walk on the wild side of life and so the only life he or she will ever know is to graduate college, get a job, get a missus or a hubby, have kids, live in a double storey house in a middle-class neighborhood, retire, go the mosque, get a high-blood pressure, high cholestrol or a stroke, or a heart attack or cancer and die peacefully in a private hospital.

Some of us will never know what it's like to take a roller coaster ride of life, going through the ups and downs that will leave you thinking why are we here at all, or why are we made this way if it has been determined from the very start that we are going to end up in heaven, or hell. We can't help but to ponder why some people end up a prostitute while some a middle-class housewife who may have a few unpaid bills on her credit cards but otherwise lead a serene life that she doesn't have to sell any part of her body for food.

Some of us have never committed primary sins because the opportunity to do so never came around long enough to shake every part of our body to forget about hell for a brief moment and grab a piece of heaven right before our eyes.

Some of us will make a life out of walking on the wild side of life because that is the only side he knows or because he's been down that road too far to get back to where he started. If he's lucky a light will dawn on him and he'll drop to the ground, tears rolling down his cheeks, and whaddaya know, he repents and everything is all right.

But some will walk further down. These are the doomed, the damned or what have you. These are the savages that have been fated from the start for hell fire. And there's nothing they can do about it.

A walk on the wild side, you'll see things different.
But you and I know that some of us are not meant for the wild side because the world is divided into those going straight to hell, while the lucky ones are on a one way trip to heaven.
How lucky some of us are.
