By the time I’m gone, maybe he would come around and inherit what is left. I don’t want to use my debt and death to disturb anybody. I was in the shop this morning. I have looked everywhere and estimated what is there. I think, with my house, a bungalow, those I am leaving behind can still live comfortably. I want to go and meet God. This world is empty. I won’t because I want to get rich join cult group. I go my way and I don’t socialize unnecessarily. I was a Muslim, I have because of this problem been jumping from one faith to the other.
