Have I ever mentioned that I’m a lone wolf? I tend to have a lot of ‘Me-time’ and I usually spend that time by reading a diary of a young girl – Anne Frank. Period. I love her so so much and how! Today’s post include Daily Prompts about Re-springing Your Step which highlights on the last memory when I feel fresh, energized and optimistic.
Anne Frank is my shrink.
I love her too much to not write about her. I wish she was alive and be my best friend. I feel the words she has written and I love the raging spirit in her. In her dark days, she wrote of hope; of how she wanted to be a writer; of how she would never be just another housewife; of how she will treat and bring up her children. She mentions of love and the time she will be able to see the sun and moon and enjoy the beauty of nature again as it is something which nobody can deny her. They are just feelings. Feelings of a 13 year old girl but isn’t it engaging enough? Cut off from the outside world, boredom, the constant cruelties of living in confined quarters, and the ever-present threat of discovery and death is horrifying. Whereas Anne records vivid impressions of her experiences during this period. By turns thoughtful, moving and amusing, her account offers a fascinating commentary on human courage and frailty and a compelling self-portrait of a sensitive and spirited young woman whose promise was tragically cut short.
Who would want to let go of a soul which still gives hope to the living and being to a spirit?
She’s the optimism to my lonesome.
