It is a narrative poetry of a mother who starts to talk to her daughters after much pressurizing from one of them to tell them how she can get a good spouse, because she wants a lovely family like the family where she is being raised up.

This man having no one to be associated with in the

Neighborhood, finds solace in this family and visits them

Regularly. When he is not visiting them, he must have left


For the stadium to watch matches or be there training himself.

The lady becomes acquainted with him and they started sharing

Things among themselves. When the man saw the intimacy between


His daughter and the young man he decides to know more about

The man because when a child is cutting a tree in the forest it is the

Elder people nearby who will know the direction the tree will fall


They are becoming remarkably close, and it is better he opens his eyes

Wide lest all his effort on her be blown off by the wind in no time.

The young man has told him where his island is, and how he has been


Moved to the new island by the company he was working with. One

Day, he told his wife that he wants to travel and then he left for the island

To ask about the young man for he has given him some salient points


About himself which would assist him in what he wants to do, carrying

Out survey and some researches into his past, and present life, for it is

Only God who knows the future, which is tomorrow, thus, he cannot make


Inquiries into the future naturally except if he goes supernaturally,

Spiritually and that information sometimes could be misleading for he remembers

The incident that happened between him and the person he would have married


The young lady after 2 years of courtship was told by some spiritualists

That the person she was engaged to would marry more than one wife in the

Future. The lady after hearing this and would not want to be married to someone

Who will practice polygamy decides to call it quit with him, and she told

Him that her leaving him was based on what those spiritualists have said,

All his discussion with her that he will not do that she never agrees because to


Her spiritual realm transcends the physical realm and what they said in the

Spiritual realm if it does not come to pass immediately would come to pass later

She would not want to be caught in the thicket of polygamous in the future for


She knows all she has passed through in the hands of her step mother and

Would not want any of her children to experience that. When the man saw that

Nothing he says moves her again, they parted ways, for it is better to severe a


Romantic relationship than having problems with one’s spouse at home after

The wedding. About 6 months later he gets engaged to their mother and married

Him 6 months after seeing each other. They are happily living and had children


He whom the spiritualists say would take another wife, has never known

Any lady apart from his wife since his life, whereas the lady who left him to marry

Someone else based on false revelation has difficult times with the man she is


Married to, and recently he heard from reliable source that her husband has

Impregnated three women, when she heard of this she was psychologically

Affected and would file for divorce.
