He captioned his post: IT’S A WRAP FOR ADA AMEH. There lies a chip of us Deadpan and ice-frozen. There lies a broken heritage. Wrapped in a funeral encasement. In that air-tight wooden bed. Is our naked truth. No matter the differences we nursed. You can never tell. How much of us is in them. There again is a grim call. A charge to everyone. That none is promised tomorrow. That we may live today as the best of days. Spreading love beyond the bounds of our comfortable thresholds. Till the twilights dim on the hour not foretold. When the once sonorous symphony. Fades forever away. On the morbid horizons. Of life’s curtain fall.”
