To many people, Music is nothing but a few metaphors with a catchy tune and good background music. To me, music is my life, my passion and my universe. It's the medicine I consume to let go of my pain. It's the only thing I listen to, to forget the past. The only thing I need to survive.
I've gone through a LOT already in the few years of life I've lived so far. I've been close to dying twice, and I've also been heartbroken and used. I've been betrayed by the one I thought I loved most. I was mocked and laughed at by the same person as well. But I get over the pain by listening to music and singing along with the song.
Music makes me feel like I still have a chance. Like I can do whatever I want to with my life. It makes me feel like I have gained power and control. It gives me the strength I need to move on, the strength I need to live. I cannot possibly imagine a day without rocking out to my favourite songs. I can't even dream of not listening to music. It makes me feel like I have a life worth living.
I feel like music was always there for me, even when the world turned against me. When I was mocked at, used, called names and abused. It was there for me when I wanted to let the darkness take over my soul. It's like music entered the dark empty room as a glowing white light, waiting for me to follow it and get my hopes back.
Music will always be there for me. No matter what happens, I know I can count on music to bring back meaning to life.
