Life can be humorous sometimes, depending on how we see it

Life varies for everyone too, depending on how we live it

Life gives all to some while others seem to have it worse

Just when some wish to raise their heads high, they got a blow to the head

When you find yourself in the ditch, stop digging

When dirt is being thrown at you, rather, shake it off

No one said life would be easy and life deals with everyone differently

There is no one with a success story that hasn't been dealt with

We might not all have the same standing but we have something to start with

We might think our experience is different but someone has gone through it before

Situations wouldn't always be pleasant and that's why we need help

Some help would take you farther from your goals and some, closer

Some things come to us as help but they are sinking sand with nothing to hold

And we would go further into the ditch than we started with

We can only live through life and then hope for the best with the right attitude

Never waste your experiences and that of others, so, always ask questions

The more you know the lesser mistakes you make as you journey through life.

Jasmine is very beautiful and no one would look upon her and think differently. Sadly, she couldn't further her education nor completed the basic one due to the death of her father. It wasn't as though they were rich but they had enough to live subsistent. The health of her mother plummeted the moment her father died and the little they have had to go into the health of her mother.

She did everything possible to get a job but nothing came up. No one wants to help her within it asking her to open her legs to repay the favour. She wasn't taught that way and she always declined which made the help she was to get restricted to some extent. She cried herself to sleep just looking at her mother on the bed and her little brother. The unexpected happened one day as her mother's health took a turn for the worst. Before she got back home that afternoon, neighbours had already taken her mother to the clinic and now, she is saddled with the responsibility of coughing the hospital bills, which she was given a limited time frame to bring else she wouldn't lose her mother.

As she was going back home from the clinic that evening, she met a man who parked his car close to her asking her to come in upon seeing the tears flowing down her face without caution. She was hesitant as usual but the man insisted and she told him about her current predicament. As usual, the man took advantage and promised to not only give her the money but also some extra so she can fend for herself and her brother. He asked her to go home with him and would give her the money the next morning before she leaves. Torn between different worlds, she accepted and went with the man who fulfilled his promise and she settled the bills.

She decided to go fully into this lifestyle and used the proceeds to feed her family as well as send her brother to school. She told her mother she found a job and that's how she has been able to sustain her family. After 3 years, her mother died and she was left with her brother. She had been mulling on the idea of quitting that "job" and the azure sky promised her a beautiful morning that day when one of her numerous customers who happened to be a widower asked her if she would marry him.

It dragged for a while and she finally agreed. The man has two children and the girl is in the United Kingdom, studying while the other one, the guy works in the father's company. The man's son had eyes for Jasmine and would always make passes at her when they were alone. She didn't want to do anything to offend him so she won't be sent packing because she felt she has found a place to give answers to everything she wished for because the man is wealthy.

The day the man travelled for a business meeting was the day the man's son decided to have his way with Jasmine. The man was away for 7 days and he had his way with her every day for those 7 days against her wishes. She would always hold back tears when she speaks with the man every day on the phone and waited for him to come back before opening up to this man.

The man got back and she told him what his son did with her but he didn't seem displeased. He simply told her never to deny the son anytime he comes around and she was shocked. It was later she got to know that father and son sleep with each other's woman/lady and that's how they have always been. She thought she has gotten herself a home and an end has come to her misery after she met this man. She came from one ditch and landed in a much deeper one.

Thank you for your time.

Life was really unfair to Jasmine, her movement was like from frying pan to fire, i pitied her! And not only her, people are really undergoing tough times. Sometimes, we would question "why is life like this?", but only God knows. It is going to well!!!

Hmm! How can a father and his son be sleeping with same woman? That's quite bad, Life was really unfair to her, and coupled with the fact that she had lost her both parents, it was like she moved from fire to fire, i pitied her!

I like the twist at the end. .. I appreciate the fact that there was no happy ending.. that's how life is- unfair. Whoever expects her to come out victorious in the end hasn't had a dose of life yet.

Pardon my dark mindset but dark isn't dark anymore- it's just a norm! Not everything should end well!

The storyline is not far from the title. Just when she thought she had arrived, she fell into a much bigger problem. She wanted to be loyal to one man, she didn't know she would be passed around by family members. Poverty can actually make persons go extreme to make ends meet. Very nice article Dear Ola.

Just when Jasmine thought she had found a life. Sighs... Such is life. This is a very beautiful piece, Mr Ola, I loved the read all through the way. Such things as this is really disheartening, sometimes I wonder if it's actually a crime to look ravishingly beautiful. Her beauty led her into a ditch and just when she thought she was redeemed, it led her into a much deeper one.
