On my death bed I cried as I realised that my life, time and energy got wasted for nothing. I thought of my albino brother whom I abandoned many years ago as I sobbed sorrowfully. As orphans, Lucas and I wandered the streets, ate from the dust bins and slept under the bridge . I left Lucas as I joined a mafia called the Snake Empire in which I became the leader of the gang. In other words, I saved Lucas by not involving him in my classic life and dodgy activities. Though life was rough and harsh out there, I was quite sure Lucas would be alright on his own as a teenage.In my early twenties, I was a brilliant and intelligent young man led to become the superior of the gang. I owned a mansion situated in an isolated forest at north of Borrowdale surbub in Harare. I had a fleet of the most expensive cars, Game Reserve farm and a hotel. I got married three times, became a widower at first, got separated secondly and my third wife whom I managed to have two children with, fled with the children. I was doing all sorts of dirty work for money and as a leader, I sent my boys to do the work. My hotel was the front place for drug and prostitution as we bribed the police to keep the place running. We cleaned up after top officials' mistakes by killing, beating up people, covering up murder scenes and abduction. I became a restless, ever working man obsessed with making money. My health started to deteriorate as I would be in and out of drug rehab several times. Prisoned a couple of times for assaults, theft and fraud. After sometime of dirty operations, a mission went wrong as I got arrested for murder, that meant a life time sentence. Whilst serving my prison term, I got admitted for a terminal illness and felt I was dying. I had nothing except of the hospital gown I was wearing and the air that I was breathing. The last statement in the court claimed everything that I owned; property, assets and money was going to be state owned. I thought of my long gone children and I asked myself, "Everything that I owned, and the life style I lived, was that worth it?" I recalled the last words which my third wife told me before fleeing away. She said that I would never do anything or go anywhere with such money. My only wish was: if I could see my family one more time before I take my last breath, ask for forgiveness and then my soul would rest in an eternal peace...
