Daily Prompt: A Bookish Choice
A literary – minded witch gives you a choice: with a flick of the wand, you can become either an obscure novelist whose work will be admired and studied by a select few for decades, or a popular paperback author whose books give pleasure to millions. Which do you choose?
I will choose ……. Let me see …….
I will settle for being an obscure novelist whose work will be admired and studied by a select few for decades.
It’s better the way I see it. A popular novelist is like a shooting star which makes its impact for a moment, and then disappears for forever from view. We all know it’s not a star even; it’s a meteor.
The other one is like a star which twinkles at you from the vast sky above. It reminds you that it is still shining, and giving light for endless time.
For I would like to remain in the sky
I wouldn’t like to fall down to obscurity
For I would like to shine for always
In the space above for infinity
