Wealth, Happiness, Sadness And Love


Long ago, there was an island where all the senses lived: Happiness, Sorrow, and everyone else, including Love.

One day it was announced in the mood that the island was going to sink, so they all fixed their boats and left.
Only love lasted. Love required patience until the last minute.
When the island was about to sink, Love decided to ask for help.


Richness was lovingly passing by in a large boat. Thando said, “Rich, can you go with me?” Richness replied, “No I can’t. There’s a lot of gold and silver in my boat. There’s no place for you here.”
Thando decided to ask Vanity, who was also passing by on a beautiful boat, “Come on, please help me!” “I can’t help you Thando. You’re all wet and you could damage my boat,” Vanity replied.

The grief was imminent so Thando asked for help, “Sadness let me go with you.” “Oh … Love, I’m so sorry I need to be alone!”
The excitement was over for Thando too, but he was so happy he didn’t even hear when Ruth called him!
Suddenly, a voice said, “Come on Love, I’ll take you.” He was an elder. Love felt so blessed and happy that she forgot to ask the elder for his name.
When they arrived at the dry land, the elder went his way. Love, realizing how much he owed the elder, asked Knowledge, another elder, “Who helped me?”
“It was time,” replied Lwazi.
“Time?” asked Thando. “But why did Time help me?

The knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and replied, “Because only Time can comprehend how great is Love.
