I am Dala Gaba-A A +A
Monday, October 25, 2010
I AM Dala Gaba. I’m either spiritual or temporal in nature because I only am the result of every deed, noticeably evil, done by every man. I have been in existence for many millennia, after which Adam and Eve ate the fruit that God has forbidden them to take. I am the antithesis of reward, and how I hate that because it will cut short my expectant mood of making somebody miserable. But anyway, I am the right hand of the greatest prince of lies and deceit, and it was because of our undoing that some angels in heaven fell from their splendor and are now plying their time with us until the Alpha and the Omega calls it the final hour.
I am Dala Gaba. I have no regrets doing what I can do because I am just following the course of every man’s action. I relish the moments when men would often say that regret always comes later. To make it short, I am just waiting on you to make the wrong move so that I can start my joyride with you.
Because of me, I can take my time to watch in glee together with my master the results of the evildoings man has done while the King of the heavenly host weeps copious tears for the destruction man has brought upon himself, others and the environment. I know that there will be the judgment day, but I also know that man has hardened himself more nowadays with the many conveniences and moral laxity that thinking about one’s actions and consequences is considered irrelevant.
I am Dala Gaba. I am always there when there are floods even in a single moment of rain because of the clogged drainage and littered garbage. I am the reason why typhoons are getting stronger every passing year because of the greenhouse gases emissions, thereby contributing to the global warming phenomena. I am the reason why there are flash floods in some cities since I was just waiting for the forest cover to the mowed down by greedy loggers and capitalists. I was just waiting for the marine life to be affected by the water pollution, and I was so lucky to have struck down a few people with red tide and minamata disease. By the way, dynamite fishermen, continue your destructive method of catching fish. Anyway, I am just waiting for a perfect timing, either there are no more fish to catch, or perhaps your hands get blown off.
I am Dala Gaba. I am very ecstatic during election time because of the bloodshed here in this little country. Here I have all the time gathering the souls of those who have died from election violence and joined in counting the money received by the voters from the candidates. I love to cloud the minds of these people that they should grab the opportunity of quick cash, never mind the long lasting effect and the future. If they realize that, then I will be the one in foul mood. I would want to make them continue doing their evil deed so that I can meet my daily quota to my master.
I am Dala Gaba, the silent operator and minion of the master of deceit. Many might notice that those who are doing evil things are not punished right before their eyes or in their lifetime. Don’t worry, ignorant fools. I just love to watch these people gloat their earthly endeavors, to the extent of forgetting their own human frailty. Like a trial prosecutor, I am just building up my case and evidences to be shown in the proper time and proper court. So don’t worry too much that they haven’t gotten yet their comeuppance, since I am already giggling with delight for every actions that they are doing. Oftentimes, I hate it when conscience got the better of somebody since it would mean one less soul for the daily quota today.
I am Dala Gaba. You can love me or hate me, but remember that I am just a seemingly benign entity of the great liar. Like I said, it is all up to you if you do something naughty or evil because like a caged animal I will be released. And when I am released, only a divine intervention will stop me from pursuing my lusts for making men misery.
