The Broken Vessel
She wanted to please everybody but ended up pleasing no one including herself. She thought there was nothing wrong in drinking like the fish as long as she drinks what the fishes drink but, she did not know that the toad likes water is not when the same water is boiling. If she had known that a man is standing in the middle of the ocean does not make him to call crocodile his friend, she would not live to please anybody. Promise was a gifted child sent to be a blessing to her family, but she had a message to deliver to the god before her destiny would be released. She was given a mysterious vessel to present to the man who would unseal it. The vessel contained a mystery that was not made known to her from the beginning of the journey, but she was warned sternly never to temper with it. Tempering with it meant tempering with her destiny. She was instructed to follow the footprint that would lead her to where she was going. If she must successfully deliver the vessel, she must not pay attention to the side attractions. To reach her destination, she had to walk on the footmark of the man who supposed to receive the vessel, but when she started losing focus due to distractions from the people she met on the way who did not know the importance of the vessel, she forgot the instructions; and the vessel she was told to guard jealously fell from her hands and broke. If she had known the danger of breaking the vessel, she would have protected it just like the way a lioness protects her cubs. The breaking of the vessel was the beginning of her end.
