If My Book Babies Could Talk

If My Book Babies Could Talk

One afternoon, I was walking past my private library. The door was cracked, and below is what I heard coming from the said space.

Positive Energy 24/7: “I’m the oldest. So, you other three must listen to me.”

It Was Destine…Urban Legend: “You may be the oldest, Positive Energy, but I’m Father’s favorite.”

The Gumbo: Food For Thought: “You may be Father’s favorite, It Was Destine. But he’s never been more inspired, than he was when it came to me.”

Far From Fiction: Short Stories Meant To Influence Reality: “Well, y’all may be older than me, but I’m more influential. You see, Father just got better after each one of you. So, his best came in the presence of yours truly.”

Positive Energy 24/7: “ You make a valid point, Lil’ Bro. But without me, none of you would exist. Anywho, I heard the Mind is pregnant, yet again. And if this is the case, we’re all subject to being just an afterthought.”

Me after entering the space: “Oh, my precious book babies. Though you all hold a special place in my heart, I love neither of you any more than the other. You all played a part in one another's existence. Now, come give your father a big hug.”

All my book babies ran towards me and did as I had asked.

Far From Fiction: Short Stories Meant To Influence Reality: “So, Daddy. Is it true? Is the Mind pregnant, yet again?”

Me: “It’s true indeed, little one. Now, now. Don’t go overthinking things. Every moment has its time. And at this time, it’s your moment to shine.”

My other book babies began to applaud and cheer for the youngest in charge, who was dancing like nobody was watching.

The end.

Thank you for taking the time to acknowledge my offering. It was shared to inspire those who don’t already have books, as well as those who do have books. In my humble opinion, visualization is the greatest form of inspiration. When we see people have done things we desire to do, this is irrefutable proof we can do it as well. I’ve been inspired by to many people to name, and thanks to their willingness to share their accomplishments. We shine, but we shine our brightest when we shine together.

May we never lose our desire to outdo what we’ve already done.

Remember. I’m not here to convince you to believe. I’m here to offer you something else to consider.
