Burden And Compassion

When people have no option than to remain with us because we pay them salary or feed them or own where they live or buy what they wear, when they depend on us completely and have no other option than to depend on us, they can endure anything to keep getting the privilege we offer. They can submit to eating our poop, licking our feet and offering their backs as our legs’ rest. It’s human to feel that since we are doing all these things for them, they owe us their lives in total submission and obedience. That’s “humane”. But it’s  inhumane to subject those we cater for to physical and emotional torture because we know they have no option than stick with us. Thinking about the helplessness of their situation, we can offer to help these people and treat them with compassion.

I'm a food scientist who has chosen the path of creative writing- the one thing which comes to me naturally.
Back in 2013, my love for teaching young learners propelled me into picking teaching as a career. I taught English, Maths and Science in the United Arab Emirates where I lived for ten years. Right now, I live in Coal City, a beautiful hilly area of my country Nigeria.
My website Fiez-writer is a product of my extreme desire to share my writing with the world. Here, I share fiction, poems, thoughts and writing tips.
A huge part of my life is spent with my lovely family and I'm a proud mother to three brilliant kids.
