I have this idea. Where, photography and writing, are united together to tell a story, explain a moment, describe a feeling, and leave people feeling not alone. This idea transformed into what I want to call: take care always. Take Care Always, is about not only taking care of yourself, but taking care of others, always-- in all ways. With this project, I am collaborating with wonderful individuals who have something to say and also share this same idea. A picture says a thousand words. Yes, but why not give those models, those people in the photos their own voice to say what they are feeling/have been feeling? I do not claim to be a professional photographer, but I am someone who wants to capture and share with others.
This has been in the making for quite some time now, and I am now officially launching it. I plan on doing more with Take Care Always than photography and writing, so please stay tuned.
I introduce to you, Charmane, and her beautiful written piece.
the uneven payment
cold underneath my knees
bleeding from the struggle to stay put
as tears begin to flow
down and around
the apples of my cheeks
erasing the carefully applied blush
that gave the illusion of the color in my life
once you left me.
struggling for air between every sob that I couldn't hold back.
the words I try to put together
come out as cries--desperate from my broken heart;
yet, I'm caught in tug of war with my mind
telling me I need to just let go.
I want to get up
I want to move
I want to run out to you
tell you that im sorry
but what an inequitable thing to do,
thing to say as I am begging for your mercy
when I know
it wasn't my fault to begin with
