The Song is About Life

As a child I wanted to do everything. At first it was writing, then singing, then playing an instrument and so on. You know, sometimes it is hard to figure out what you want to do. It’s like going to college for a specific major and changing your major over and over until you figure out what you want.


Who thought being a child was easy? Every day I looked at myself in the mirror and thought “who are you?” and “what do you want to be?” until, reaching down into my soul, I realized “writing is the way to go.” All I do is talk talk talk everyday, so why not put my words on a sheet of paper and tell a story?
