Close your eyes for a second and imagine being all tied up and thrown into a metal drum. If you are claustrophobia then this is bad enough. Alas! This situation is not the worse in this narration. 

Just when you think you have been handed your worse fate your ears pick up the sound of the drum being gruesomely sealed. Simultaneously, a hole is drilled at the lower part of the left side of the metal drum. The noise is deafening and disturbing but your fear triumphs above it all.

The driller works with caution not out of care for your helpless soul but because he is used to following instructions. Your thoughts are running wild as you are wondering what in God’s name is happening to you. Out of human instinct, you foolishly kick vigorously but you are the only one getting hurt. You scream at the top of your voice but your outcry is like music to the ears of your oppressors. 

Suddenly, you feel being lifted from the ground.  ‘What is about to happen? What do they plan to do to me?’ You wonder in panic, but like Jon Snow, you know nothing.

Then the next thing you noticed is that you have been thrown into the sea. Wow! What a cruel way to go. Your chance of floating is crushed as water penetrates the drum from the drilled hole. You suffocate to death and die alone inside a rusty drum at the bottom of the sea. This painful plight is similar to living an unhappy life.
