The passage from birth to death is a journey that binds us all… In this debut anthology entitled Marching with a Broken Shadow, readers are invited to embark on that journey; delving profoundly into their innermost thoughts and prevailing feelings – from the deepest and darkest layers of hurt and confusion, to the most hypnotic forms of happiness and dream. Take the quest with the central character, and look forward to exploring, with reminiscence and wonder, the voyage we call life, the ending we know as death, and all that lies in between.
The human condition is one riddled with complexities about the path we yearn for, who we are and what we believe.
We have become so dogmatic in our own beliefs that when they don’t come to fruition or we find them to be a hoax, our journey can come crashing down with doubt, fear, and uncertainty. Many individuals think they know why they are doing what they do, where they will end up, or who they wish to be in 3 to 7 years until a catastrophic event called life occurs.
We dream to live adventurously but the fear of change confines us to only existing, which is to survive in the fog of society thus creating a disoriented/invisible sensation. The unknown causes our thoughts to imprison us as we ponder if we will ever be content or if we will forever be in debt paying bills. We work hard to be accepted instead of acknowledged. We wonder about our next occupation or what comes after retirement. We worry about things we can’t control then suffer from anxiety. Our breath is limited by our determination and imagination yet those things we can take hold of.
We exclaim at times to be lost, but to be lost is to know where X marks the spot yet unclear on how to get there. So the question is:
What’s the Journey Toward X?
This book is meant to help you not only choose your path, but how to choose it wisely and magnanimously.
