To some people, it’s another word in the dictionary, but to me, it’s something extraordinary. Music, for me, is a way of being heard without actually saying a single word. It’s what makes me feel at ease. All I need to do is put on my Beats, turn up the volume of my music, and turn down the noise of the world. I close my eyes and let the music take over my soul, enjoying every phrase and every note. When I’m drowning in a sea of my own problems, it’s music that saves me and keeps me afloat. It is the thread I hold on to when I feel like giving up on myself. Music has the power to make me smile when I’m at my weakest and has helped me fight through all of my struggles, allowing me to be my strongest.
