Fank sat in the prison and pondered over the moment in which he hit his colleague Donald in a fit of rage. Frank had worked in a furniture factory. He knew that his colleague Donald disliked him for the way he prospered in life. As he chiselled, dressed and shaped wood into beautiful furniture, he had always believed that that was what he was doing with his own life. One day Donald said something in reference to Frank’s insincerity in work and Frank hit him on his head. Donald lay in the hospital fighting for life and Frank was given a prison sentence. But as Frank now reflected, he discovered that he never realized that there was such an evil power within him that would create a prison around his life. He was now confronted with this evil that he did not want.
