this post is in response to a daily prompt here
So this may be the first ever prompt where dont write any poetry or spewl out a fictional story with a subliminal message. Reading today’s prompt made me relive a happier time in my life in all of its nostalgic glory.
Ever since i was young there was one emotion that I identified most with. An emotion that truly lead the soul to euphoria and back and laid a bed out for us on the infamous cloud nine itself. That emotion as we all so dearly call it is and was happiness, joy; or simply put as bliss. Even as a mere child I knew the value of this emotion. The motivation it provides to change ones life and how its withdrawals cause people to lose the core of their soul.
Understanding all these facts about the great emotion itself and seeing life with a youthful mind I decided I wanted to be a freak. Its weird, yes, sort of well, freaky. What I truly desired was however to perform for all the people who’d been withheld from the great emotion itself and see the smiles on their faces as they left. The carnival always interested me, seeing those acrobatic masteminds risking their lives to put on an amazing show while all the clowns spread the laughter in the crowds. It seemed so surreal and yet so fulfilling. To travel the world bringing smiles to people’s faces and showing them for a brief moment a truer embodiment of happiness.
Like all childly ambitious goals however, I grew out of that phase. I realized how most carnivals are just full of animal abusing criminals and under paid miserable labors. Even to this day though, I still dream of bringing smiles to people’s faces and while I may not still plan on being a freak I know I’ll acheive my goals somehow and show people what true bliss can really mean.
