    Mr. Alexander W. Gaskarth My Hero

    Just last week I attempted suicide for the first time ever. I have told few people about it. When I do tell them about it there is just one detail I keep to myself. I guess I feel that it is special, and I wanted to keep it as just mine. I have decided to share that though. I...

    The Only Happiness

    Music Is The Words My Heart Can't Say

    I didn't know how much music could do till I hit rock bottom. When I was only 15 i had gotten pregnant and if that wasn't already stressful enough I was going to have twins. After the shock wore off I'd decided not to dwell in it after all it would do no good to get upset it was...

    Music plays a major role in my life.

    Not only listening to it. But being a musician has really been the only way for me to express myself at times. When I was at my weakest point music was the only thing I could reach out and lean on. I'd made a bunch if poor choices and lost my friends. And I'd also lost my...

    I love rap. It's the only reason of my happines. When I'm tired and sad I listen to rap. At school I listen to rap. At home I listen to rap. Everywhere I listen to this! Music can't save my life because is my life.

    Very Powerful Music

    Music Saved Me

    Music is my lifeline. I listen to music constantly. Music has gotten me through the rough patches in my life by reminding me what it's like to feel alive. Music makes me think, feel, and sometimes, when its really bad, music makes me just remember to keep breathing.
