This last Spring, I discovered the song: Girl, by SYML. I sat in my yard at sunset, and heard this song a lot. One day, I was walking around, and felt like sinking to my knees crying because it just hit me hard.
Broken and hurt….
Shake off the night and don’t hide your face
The sun lights the world with a single flame
I want you to see this….
I would have to reveal layers of pain and hurt to get the average person who reads this blog to understand, and I can’t say that here. An Artist wants to reveal, wants to hide at the same time. I have said it before here in so many words. I am late to the party. Years of health issues, and deep fears have controlled my life, and I am just now breaking free of the ties that bind me. Seems like a song God would sing to me. Sometimes, yes it is a song that will take me right out of my world, and be enough to motivate me. It usually is something inspiring.
Sometimes our bodies will hurt for some time
And the beauty in that can be hard to find
I want you to find it
I want you to see this
That part gets me because my body has gone through hell, and continues to fight to optimal health.
So run, wake up and run, my little one
I wanna tear down these walls that can’t hold you inside
And rip out the cords and uncover your eyes
We’ll make our escape in the dark of night
I need you to see this
I am trying to tear down the walls that have held me, and my Art has led me to break free and learn not just about my purpose, but has stunned me at what I learn from it, and that I even have it in myself to paint. In other areas of my life, I am slowly learning what my talents are, and how to go forward.
All of your battles will shape who you areAnd know that your scars are my favorite partI want you to know this
