Sharing even though you’re not talented enough

When I started uploading my original songs in this blog, I knew that my voice wasn’t perfect and so was my songwriting skills, but I thought, this is what I’ve got so far, and whatever, maybe some people will like them. Who knows? I guess this blog has taught me that it’s ok to share what I can do even if I’m not sure about the amount of talent that I have.

Original song: You made a mistake (video)

Note: written in 2015-2016

I’d like to apply

All the Songs I’ve Written 3: Rays of the Black Roses

Note: This is a song I wrote when I was in grade school

I.
We are the fire of the night,
The shining girls of the daylight,
The she firing roses of the dark,
And the mysterious rose of the light,
Fire is our friend and night is our love,
Rays of the black roses.

All the Songs I’ve Written 2: True Friends

This is a song I wrote when I was in grade school.

True Friends

I.

When you have problems and you can’t solve it,

Let someone know about it,

Even just your mother or your father or your siblings,

And I guarantee you only one thing,

Your friends can tell you about these things

And it will no longer hurt Continue reading “All the Songs I’ve Written 2: True Friends”
