PROMPT FOR THE DAYl
on WordPress ….Lifestyle
by John Yeo
When we break the word LIFESTYLE in half, the prompt is doubled at a stroke, and becomes two separate sides of a puzzle.
In consecutive order we start with an incredibly precious beginning;
Two children take their first breaths in two remarkably different cultures. A baby is born and knows just the environment surrounding him or her.
Aisha is born and steeped in the love of her parents. Raised in the style of their lives and the hardship that surrounds the family home. Aisha is a survivor.
On the opposite side of the wheel of fortune, Hank takes his first breath, surrounded by luxurious trappings,
The lottery of life dictates the style of life that a newborn child is destined to follow.
The second and final part of the prompt is …
Aisha using her looks and quick wit, attracts a handsome, rich. vulnerable young man. Marriage follows quickly and she develops and grows accustomed to a style of life that her parents couldn’t ever have dreamed of.
Hank is accustomed to every luxury life can throw up. A weak man he marries a pretty young lady who is responsive to his every need. A strong woman who pushes him forward.
Hank becomes bored and begins to gamble, losing much of his inheritance, he turns to drink and is soon penniless.
Aisha gets a fast divorce from her wealthy husband and enjoys the lifestyle that comes from a large marriage settlement.
Two different lifestyles begin and end on different planes of existence. The lottery of life sees the coin landing as randomly in life as in a new birth.
