RELATIONSHIP

NOT GOOD ALONE

BY

I.J DAHILO

I woke up one morning…with deep sense of feeling about life…

I thought of a “wifeless” life…

I mean is there any need for marriage?

I suddenly feel I want to hold on to “my privacy” much longer than I thought…

Do you know what it means?

A partner coming in…

I’ll lose my “privacy”

I’ll lose my “freedom”

I can’t go out anytime I want

I can’t even return at my time

I can’t decide when to smile or when to be mute…

Someone needs my attention when i am trying to focus.

Someone want hang-in, When I want hang-out

Someone now knows by bank account balance…

She monitors my spending…

She could be everything different from me…

Now I have double immediate families…

Now I have larger number of siblings…

What if she feels bored, and doesn’t want this “bondage” again…?

What if she is not as nice as I saw from a “close distance”?

What if I am not man enough for all these?

I concluded marriage wasn’t “worth” it…

I concluded I want to remain single….

I want my singlehood back….

I want my lonely hang-outs…back

I want “freedom”

But he asked me a question… “Dear son…what can you exchange with my will for your life?

In soberness …I answered… nothing Lord…

Then he said…

It is not good for a man to be alone!”
