DIRTY GARMENT

imagesThings sometimes never seems to be how they appear, generally the human eye tend to portray things as perfect as we could imagine and the mind also easily compliment that effect.

More so, society has defined to us how things must be and not how we as individuals must comprehend what we make out of things. Hitherto, social construction of reality has for instance defined to us what beauty should be, what wealth should be, what an ideal family or person should look like.

This has actually led to so many systemic failure and the quest for rapid individual wealth. I quite remember, how I fell ashamed when going to work one day, I struggled in this normal Trotro Wahala thing, till I finally had a seat in this bone shaker, in my white shirt and ‘red classy tie’ .

I knew I had met all the requisite fashion trendy vogue, and was very particular about who will sit beside me in the Van, yet my prayers never came to pass, just after I sat, I realised this man in his seemingly dirty attire just sat closed, wow a normal Ghanaian mechanic ( A fitter as we call them). This plump guy squeezed himself right beside me till he realised he had a well befitting contact with my right shoulder. Hmmm you can only imagine!

I thought of his dirty garment and the apparent bad smell that could emanate… But you see, I was wrong, though he wore this visible dirty garment he was clean without any notable perspiration, scent or blemish.

I was drown-back until he engaged me in a conversation, so clean and astute, well spoken and was very collective in thought. He told me he was a mechanical engineer, a graduate and owns a workshop because he couldn’t stand the atmosphere of working for someone. Through that he’s made a living, and has created wealth for himself and others while I continue to work for someone. Hmmm that’s the reality.

My drive is I thought wrong, I misjudged based on appearance because we were made to believe people in dirty garments are made of certain class with negative attributes.

Quite succinctly, we dream of living a classy life befitting of social standard. We will love to marry beautiful ladies with all the curves. With good looks, with pure garment. So our ladies will also dream of marrying guys who are tall, handsome, nice looking and most importantly men who have enough cash to blow them off.

But like how diamonds and golds are extracted in a miry disgusting clay, till they are refined to meet societal standards, life isn’t all about what we see, perceive nor like.

Who knows? Your breakthrough might be in that dirty garment, what you least expected to be, that yam or cocoyam, or even the things you disregard.

All those notable genuine men and women who we classify as successful and admire. May have succeeded wearing dirty garments some times back.

Best things never come ordinarily!

Perhaps, the best thing the could ever happen to you is to find opportunities in things that you or society will never regard as worth looking or struggling for…

I always meet this self-appointed street preacher @Circle demanding money from passersby in return for God’s blessings. I do not want to talk about the deafeaning noise that comes out from his speakers mounted on the pedestrian walkway which is against the by-laws of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly and the Environmental Protection Agency

“Today is a special day,give a special offering for God to bless you. His blessings are waiting for you,don’t miss it” on he dramatises,scr
