Everybody Needs a Spark Sometimes

Daily Prompt: This Is Your Life

by michelle w. on January 11, 2013

If you could read a book containing all that has happened and will ever happen in your life, would you? If you choose to read it, you must read it cover to cover. 

Depends on the writing style. If it were written in an enchanting, personable language I might be tempted to read it if only for the sheer joy of experiencing they beauty of semiotics. A scant, detached and matter-of-fact tone without any commentary, on the other hand, would not only be unappealing to me, but also grossly out of character. I revel in seeing myself from newer perspectives, whether they are favorable or not, because each pass over my life grants me deeper insight. A scientific statement of facts would be highly unenlightening to me. Yet, if writing style were not a factor, I would have to ultimately say I lean towards no. There are painful, dark parts of my life which I do not need to revisit in prose as I have already spent years exhausting the subject in poetry. As for the future, I have no desire to see what it figuratively holds. I would only purposefully spend the rest of my life trying to foil it, just out of sheer stubbornness.

One thought on “Everybody Needs a Spark Sometimes

  1. Interesting scenario! I’d read my past, no matter in what style it had been written. Perhaps I would get some unexpected insight.

    As much as many of us would like to look into a crystal ball to see what the future holds, I’d never, ever, want to read what happens in my future. How blah. I’m fearful enough of it as it is, ha ha!
