Hey all #awritechristmas fans, followers and #writers! I promise I’m following back and reciprocating the generous gestures! Instagram is acting up and not allowing me to do so all at once. But, I’m feeling the ❤️ and will be back up and running soon, I hope! Merry Christmas! -#JoeFederico #christmas#livelearnmarket
The dreary days like today Joyless motions and then again Blessed be the ones in pain For on our backs the others stand My soul searching for any hope My mind stutters my words are choked My soul on fire concealed in smoke My love and loss caught in my throat
. This moment of darkness was taken months ago. It's still not clear why I captured it. Even to this moment it's not clear if it should see the light of day especially when happiness is the only publicly acceptable emotion to capture and share. . Maybe it's existence will help me to be more authentic to myself and others. Perhaps it's presence will help others to see it's ok not to be ok despite the flood of smiles we constantly scroll through. Possibly it can help someone to know we're not all fighting the same battles but you're not alone in this war.
