Kingdom of the Sun Theme: Change…Will You Make it, Take it, or Question It?
Posted by hhh4u
“Kingdom of the Sun reflects the desire that most of us have to make a change, whether it be in the world or in our own lives, and how we may lack the strength or the courage to do it.”- Ariffa Bevin
The theme of change is ever-present in my upcoming novella Kingdom of the Sun. With the desire, thought, and action of change comes many questions such as: “Have the promised changes occurred?,” “How long will it be until change happens?,” “How long will the change last?,” “What are the effects of change?,” and “Is this change really change,?”
Things change, and most of the time, it is inevitable. I accept that. But what I do not approve of is when change is accepted easily, without question of how or why or who said “change” really benefits.
“There are so many people that want change, but they do nothing about it. Then there are also those that want change but do not believe it will happen.”- Helena, Kingdom of the Sun
Are you one of those people?
Like the character of Helena, there may be many things that are holding us back from making a change. We must remember that when it comes to change, there two types of people: 1) Those who submit to the changes around them and are subject to whatever happens and 2) Those who will not only fight for change, but question and challenge it when it comes their way, never allowing themselves to be drones or puppets.
So many factors fall into making change and taking change, but two questions will always stand true:
1) How bad do you want it?
2) Will it/does it make a difference for the better?
Peace and Love,
