In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Singing the Blues.”
Why would I want to ignore my sadness?
Lykke Li sang
“Sadness is a Blessing”
And I agree with her.
The thing is, Sadness reminds us of how human we are.
The Brief interlude between bouts of happiness.
Or is happiness the interlude?
Anyway, when I feel sad
I have a play list on my phone titled
“The Hole in My Soul”
I know, I know. Its a tad dramatic.
Artists vary from:
Hozier (From Eden, the entire album)
Lana Del Rey’s Ultraviolence.
Some Songs from the movie “Into the Woods”
(oh gosh, I love that movie)
With all these songs . I shuffle them.
And then I don’t feel so bad anymore.
Besides, it’s not that bad to be sad every now and then.
That’s about it.
