You can change your world with your songs even if you don’t change THE world. Songs can impact people in a way that no other medium can. Words and music have power. When you put them together correctly, they are unstoppable.
Writing is good therapy. Without it I would have kept many things inside that I instead put on paper and released out into the world. Even now, my songs are often my most meaningful way of making sense of life and what I believe.
Writing is most likely a part of you that is not easily replaced. Most of us can’t be content to stop writing and take up tennis. Writing is an essential piece of who we are. Giving that up is like giving up a part of our soul.
It’s tough. There’s no doubt. But don’t give up!
