Is a Piece of Land so Important?
Land is only a word constructed with four letters, but the power it has can exceed the limitation of the twenty six letters in English language. I know it from my life how a piece of land can a break relationship between brother and sister, or between mother and her children. What is essential in our lives? Is it so important to have a piece of land rather than having a strong attachment between us? Life is full of unanswered questions and even if there is any answer, nobody wants to find it.
In a big city, my family owns a tiny piece of land, but some people think it is priceless. To them, the land is a gold mine. Once someone has it, he will be very prestigious in the society. So some greedy people mislead my family members and try to break our relationships. My family members do not understand that they are being deceived. Even if I can understand the malicious machinations, I cannot fight against the majority. No one believes me! Sometimes I regret being the youngest and not having the power to change the situation. Indirectly I am being forced to keep silent and accept everything. Yet my heart does not want to listen to them. I cry silently and watched my family’s disintegration because we own a piece of land.
Now I know that land is the most devastating thing in the world.
