Discovering the Beauty of the Underworld: Is Love Worth the Ultimate Sacrifice?


Discovering the Beauty of the Underworld: Is Love Worth the Ultimate Sacrifice? In the enchanting world of literature, there exists a timeless piece of prose, “The Concubine” by Elechi Amadi, which we have aptly titled “The Beauty Of The Underworld.”

I am here to make amends, my dearest readers, for I once vowed to share with you a poetic masterpiece that has resonated deeply within my heart. But first, let me share a piece of my own story, titled “Rekindling Hearts: A Story of Resilience, Divorce, and Redemption.” It has consumed my time, but how could I ever be too busy for the cherished audience that has walked this journey with me? I assure you, this shall not recur.

Now, without further ado, let me introduce you to a world where words weave magic: “The Beauty Of The Underworld.”

“Beauty; they say, is good.
Beauty; they say, is lovely.
Beauty; they say, is dangerous.
She can lure you to death.
She can love you till eternity.
Men cherish her for her greatness.
Beauty; she envies not.
Not boastful; but humble and sweet.
The first; is United as one.
An owner of her.
But the wind blew the tree away.
The second; is so boastful.
The Nature; he wanted by force.
But spilt by the venom of the moving ground.
And the third and last,
so loyal to two Masters.
Anyika and Agwoturumbe.
More loyal to the latter than the former.
Anyika; ‘leave the beauty alone and be blessed till ages’.
A truth thought to be a lie.
A destination to AGWOTURUMBE.
The Sea-King; tamed or never.
Love was seen in the eyes of beauty,
and history came to pass.
Got cleansed from the ends of the Earth.
Three gone for beauty.
A pre-destined arrow.
Tears; A source of endless water.
The voice is great
For no one values a prophet in his hometown.”

In this tale, the concept of beauty transcends the superficial. It is an enigma that can both enchant and destroy, leaving us captivated by its aura. Just like the first head, united as one, that once owned her but was torn away by the relentless winds of fate.

Then there is the second head, driven by insatiable desire, seeking to possess nature itself but falling prey to the venomous grip of the ever-shifting ground.

And the third head, torn between loyalty to two masters, Anyika and Agwoturumbe. A tragic loyalty that ultimately leaned more towards the latter, sealing a destiny neither could escape.

In the backdrop of this gripping narrative is the enigmatic Sea-King, a character as untamable as the sea itself. Love, too, found its place within the eyes of beauty, shaping history and transcending time.

Three heads lost, all for the sake of beauty. It was a predestined arrow, an inevitable outcome, and the tears shed along the way became an endless source of reflection.

In the end, the voice that proclaimed these truths remains powerful, for as the saying goes, “no one values a prophet in his hometown.” Such is the eternal paradox of beauty, a force that both seduces and warns, leaving its mark on those who dare to seek it.

So, my dear readers, as you delve into the depths of “The Beauty Of The Underworld,” remember that beauty is not merely skin deep; it is a multifaceted enigma that can captivate, ensnare, and, ultimately, redefine destinies. Embrace its allure, but heed its warnings, for within its mysteries lies a truth that transcends time.
