Day 20, 11 of September - Like a book.

     Our life is like a book. It has a plot, setting, themes chapters and characters. It has a beginning and an end. The chapters can be compared to the steps we take in our lives. The people we meet are the characters: some are main characters,others just extras that can have an important presence, but just for a few 'pages'. The themes may depend on our state of mind, our actions, our decisions, and even the decisions that others (the extras perhaps) make but somehow mess with our lives too. Every page is a day that always  have consequences on our future life, and whenever we read a page, we can no longer pretend it doesn't exist, like the choices we make and the days that pass. The same happens with the characters and, in a bigger scale, with the chapters. If we did a bad choice that had bad consequences, even if it was just for a few moments, we can't erase it from our past. Just like a page, or even a few lines in a vast sea of words. But there's a huge gap between our life and a book: when you star reading a book, the end is already written...
     Still, sometimes I wish my life was a book, so I could read some chapters over and over again, until I knew them by heart.
