Music is Everything

Sometimes your life just hits rock bottom. Disappointments surface and people happen and it all just whirls into a little pool of self-pity.

Many people have the knack of telling others that life is what it is and it’s not always easy. That bad things happen to good people and trials and tribulations are mere stepping stones towards greater heights.

No, it’s not always easy. No, people are not always nice. Some people, in my experience, are there simply to teach you more about what you should strive towards despite their remorseless words and behaviour. To teach you to be strong no matter what the trials. And you yourself need to keep from anticipating the light at the end of the tunnel as an oncoming train.

Ironically, my drive for life these days is getting up in the morning and sitting in traffic for an hour so that I can listen to the imaginative genius of some of my favourite bands. They are what get me through most days.

No matter how sad or trivial or tough life seems, it is always music that has the ability to either heighten your emotions or drown them out in its harmonic bliss. Though life doesn’t come with music, it is so simple to make music come to life.

Music has the power to help you pretend things away. It can take you to secret places. Help you build castles that your imagination can live in. It can help you live in the fantasy world that’s been forced into your mind by your neglected soul. Assist you in developing the plots you had always envisioned for yourself. Soothe your pains. Fly you off to the most illustrious depths of the universe.

Music’s the only thing that makes sense anymore, man. Play it loud enough, it keeps the demons at bay.

Music is power.

Music is everything.
