Is it alright to write an SOP like the one in the details?

I agree with everything you said in the details of your question. SOP is supposed to talk about your research potential. Most of the people reading your SOP couldn't care less how you spent your childhood unless you committed crimes (in which case you might not get admission).

Good luck.
