A Beautiful Timeline

by Martin Peter Mburu

I had the best social media timeline.
My friends and family complimented me.
I had thoughtfully crafted and curated all the content on display.  
The numerous likes and provoking comments from my many followers testified. 
One day, I had the highest number of visits,
But a hunger of an absence lingered.
What was missing?

I prayed. I searched. I asked.
“My God, My Lord, I have done so much, but you don’t visit my timeline.”
The Lord answered.
“Long before social media, on the sixth day of creation.
I created the most beautiful timeline that will ever exist: The human heart. 
I visit it all the times. 
I have been looking at yours — 
Your beautiful online timeline is missing in your heart’s display.”
