I am

I am everything you don't want me to be. 
Everything you said that I couldn't be. 

Everything that you said wouldn't happen. 

You mocked me. 
Made fun of me. 
Tore me apart. 

I am what I want to be. 
I am a bird being set free. 
You're words mean nothing to me. 

You tried to hold me back, 
To restrain me from what I can do. 
You tried to stop me.

I may not be beautiful, 
I may not be perfect, 
But I am what I want to be.
And I have never lost sight of that. 

Your words were enough to hold me back, 
To stop me from seeing what truly mattered. 
To stop me from reaching heights I thought were impossible.

But that wasn't for long, 
I moved forward soon. 
Left you and your opinions behind. 
Forgot about everything you said. 

I'm not going to sit there and watch the world go by. 
I'm not going to lose sigh of my dreams.
I'm not letting you stop me.

I have dreams that I may not be able to achieve. 
But what's the harm in trying them.
What's the harm in giving them a go?

I will be everything that I want to be,
I will not let you bring me down.


Every single beat, 
Every single note, 
Every single movement. 

It wells up inside your chest, 
And just spreads across your body. 
A feeling of warmth and home. 

Music it an escape.
You play through it.
You feel it. 
You connect with it. 

Music is a beautiful thing.
Something that can take you to a different world. 
Something that can make you feel a million different things, 
All at once. 

Music can take over. 
It can becomes a part of you. 
Something that you can't live with.
Something that is a lifeline. 

Because when all else fails,
Music is there, 
It understands, 
It empathizes with you. 

Music can take you away.
Stop the pain. 
Show you that you aren't alone.

Music is your heart and soul
