    Music Is Me, I Am Music

    Music is like... my soul speaking out. The rhythm goes through me and when it comes out, it is full of my secrets, fears, hopes and loves. Music speaks like no other can, it lifts up words in its soft arms and does not speak of them unless you want them too. Music is the life of...
