This is poetry in motion of songwriting, "The Pendulum Rocks", a song I have been working on that means much to me. It still needs a lot of work and seeking collaboration. #songwriting #poetryinmotion #musiccollaboration It started from a few verses of a poem a friend sent to me and I expanded upon his words as I felt from my perspective. Words are very important. Perspective is everything. #perspective #mindfulness My ability to express myself through words has been huge throughout my life's journey. It has given me a sense of control and a space to escape. #selfempowerment Learning to express myself musically has been a challenge, but I keep on going at it. Because it really matters to me and simply it just feels good. #keepgoing #createmusic #musicislife #musicishealing The lyrics I wrote in this song were inspired from a very kind poet. Thank you my friend! Here is the poem that he shared with me... #lyricwriter "Time lies far away....the way we stay, the way we pray. The pendulum rocks the clock...tic toc, tic toc. Time keeps moving on" - Grizz #poetsofinsta And so this is my intro to lyric writing, yet another song about real life. #songsaboutlife "The Pendulum Rocks" I am a survivor of suicide loss and I am healing through the arts. This song is much to do with resiliency and perseverance, the ability to hang on and keep going... as the pendulum rocks, a brilliant new sun will rise again, and a new day will come. Take a moment. Simply pause. Pray. Be mindful of all that you are leaving behind. Tomorrow is as beautiful as we create it to be. #healingthroughthearts #amwriting #writerslife #resilience #ptsd #survivorsofsuicideloss #suicidelossurvivor #griefjourney #healingjourney #griefsupport #stopsuicide #stopstigma #artist #writer #songwriter #ourvoice #southerngracebydesign @afspnational @themightysite @namicommunicate @mikeposner @sierraeagleson
