Sometimes we get fooled into believing that what we create doesn’t matter.
We forget that we are a part of something much larger than ourselves. Although we have been forged by our culture, our family, and our past experiences — our voice is still ours alone. We must learn how to use this voice even when it may not conform to the expectations of those around us.
We are not alone.
There are others around us who think or feel the same way we do but may lack the courage to speak up. As artists, writers, and musicians it is up to us to remind them they are connected to something much larger than themselves. They alone have the ability to contribute their verse and ultimately add to either the joy or the sorrow of this world.
What will you do with your moment upon the stage?
