I used king Pharaoh right? Yeah, I did.
We all know he was very much stone hearted that
he asked for several signs before he released the
Well, it once happened while I was in school.
One of the school rules was to put on black pair
of shoes and white socks.
As you all know, during the dry season, your
black shoes would have turned white before
leaving school that day.
I’m sure you experience such school life?
Well, that fateful day, my shoes have changed its
All hope not lost, we had these set of people who
always brought their shoe polish to school just to
shine their shoes after the closing time even if
their house is near the school.
You would also call them ‘ologe’ right?
Yeah, that’s the perfect word.
So, I lent a polish from one of them to polish my
white turned pair of shoe!
She gave it to me and went somewhere. Though,
we do go home together, I had to wait till she
After I finished polishing my shoes, another
classmate of mine asked me to give her the
polish so she could use.
I, being the ‘bobo nice’ as my principal would

She called me from behind that we should start

To cut the story short, another classmate came
to ask for the matter. I narrated it to him but she
didn’t accept our plea.
I was moved to tears when the guy decided to
leave me to my fate.
Not long afterwards, another classmate who had
experienced her unforgiving heart came to settle it.
At long last, she narrated the reason why she
wouldn’t accept the shoe polish from me. I
admitted my mistake anyway and pleaded.
”She is not that kind of girl”, the other girl said
She collected the polish though she said she
would never use it again. Only God knows if she
eventually threw it away.
We went home together though I kept wondering,
”how can someone be this unforgiving?”
Since that day, I never crossed her path.
So great people, being stone hearted brings
people farther away from you. Imagine someone
telling me, since he experienced her unforgiveness,
he never let anything bring them close.
