Like Fireworks Weeping into Bloom

Location

Ford Hall: Fireside/Lobby

Subject Area

English: Creative Writing

Description

This is an excerpt from a collection of songs revolving around the theme of conditionality. The full project is a senior thesis that combines the disciplines of music and creative writing in search of a language between the two misprinted versions of the truth that constitute either of these disciplines when viewed as hermetically separate from one another or from all other forms of communication. Similarly, the exploration of conditionality -- over the course of the collection and to a lesser extent throughout each song -- finds that although human interrelations can lead to humiliation, disappointment and ravaging pain, engaging in these interrelations is eventually the choice preferable to the speaker. The speaker concludes that it is both more costly and more worthwhile to be involved messily in a community than to be hermetically isolated, safe from emotion and utterly alone.
