Excerpt from Act of Time

By Dahiru Amina.

Every day we make choices, what shoe to wear? What food to eat? Every day we make choices that define how the day goes. We are wired to know the difference between pain and gain, and every choice we make is either one of them, has to be one of them

We’ve been given a pen and book and our destinies are all what we write them out to be. Regardless of how intelligent you might be, you are bound to have a lapse of judgement. 

So, here I was sitting across a forty-five year old man, a bottle of insecticide and between us a confession note and a suicide note. 

“The choice is yours but you’ve got to make a decision in 10 minutes or you lose the right to a choice. Tick tock”
