Music is inside me. I look around at other musicians and I get confused... The melodies and lyrics have been recorded for generations now, but none of them are quite fitting for my experience. If it’s not what’s popular, are my lyrics still important to write? If they aren’t shared or understood, will my songs be worth creating? It’s like I have ended the songs that tell my story and the story of love within before they could begin. It’s like I am grieving a life I never lived as a songwriter. I thought I needed permission. So I am putting my business dreams on “simmer” so I can boil some potential songwriting on the main burner. I have the only permissions that matter. Mine and God’s. Someday I hope to lead nations in song and become a stepping stone for the next generation of worshippers.
