A Lockdown Story

By: M. Lewis Motter

When the lockdown first started, I was really kind of skeptical that it was as bad as they were claiming. So I didn’t put a whole lot of concern to it. In America the authorities were kind of late responding anyhow. However, after I talked to a few of my friends that were in the medical field and became more informed, I took the recommendations more seriously.
It really didn’t change my life as profoundly as it had for other people. I’m already introverted. I don’t have many friends, and live in a rural area.

The biggest impact for me was financial. I had already been struggling, and now it became more difficult.
In all, I’m thankful I’m resourceful.

The other huge impact was that it gave me time to work on my own business in creativity. My art, poetry, and writing flourished so much, more than ever before. It has also given me the opportunity to meet people from around the world. I’ve never been more successful. Success for me is never measured monetarily.

A Note From Eden: Dear Lewis,
I stan the gravity of brightness that emits from your story. I stan your ability to remain a light, even when speaking about the hurdles and darkness of life. You are truth. You are, and would always be a fountain of inspiration. You are an epitome of art and its awesomeness. Your heart is a masterpiece of strength, beauty and brilliance. And these three are reflected in your works (in art), with no exception to this story told. Thanks for sharing your truth with us at Express-Shun. The world is dark enough. Continue to shine the light that you are.


Much love!!

Wow! I’ve always known people abroad have their own struggles, but it still never seemed real. The media,movies and the others always give us a perfect view of America, only. Thanks for the beautiful truth. The Truth is always beautiful even though it hurts sometimes. This feels so close to my heart. Hod bless you for sharing.

There are struggles everywhere. I know several people that have come to America and are not pleased with what they find.

It’s rare to see someone come out in all genuineness. Somehow this gives a lot of hope, knowing that what I am going through in this current phase is felt by someone else miles away. Glad you have the courage to hold on to something that gives you fulfillment not withstanding. That is the true life

If we are not genuine and truthful how can anyone ever know us? I think it’s very important to be genuine in a world that loves to hide the truth.

You are not alone. I know many of us are going through many struggles. We have to remember we have each other.

The world needs more of you. More of your type. Continue to inspire in truth, art and everything beautiful.

I will always. God told me to do my best to be there for people. So that’s what I do.

It’s all for God. In loving my fellow man, I serve the one most high.

Glad you’re safe and the pandemic did not affect your health. And health plus the beautiful mindset you already have is wealth. In no time this will result in your finances as well. Cheers!

Whatever struggles you are going through. Remember you aren’t alone. Many of us have struggles, some can not be easily seen. But you are never alone, reach out many of us that struggle the most are the first ones to reach back.
