This post is for the writing contest: You Are A Writing held by Positive Writer.
When someone tells you to follow your dreams they often forget that there are many outrages, almost impossible dreams out there. There are always those kids in kindergarden that stand up and say "I want to be an astronaut" or "I want to be a doctor". My dream on the other hand was to be a famous musical artist that writes music. Last time I checked there was no bachelor degree for famous musical artist that writes music. My dream could only be accomplished by being discovered and being discovered was a very hard thing to accomplish.
Now there are two kinds of writers in this world; Writers who write for others and writers who write for themselves. I started writing music when I was only 13 years old, but the problem I faced was the fact that I was writing music that I thought other people would like. By doing this kind of writing I found myself in a constant battle with my only passion, music. Music was no longer a hobby to me, it was simply a job. This battle continued until the day I sat on my bed with my guitar and wrote a song. Something was different about this song. The words were real. The feeling was mine. The sound was passion. After recording this song I realized something very important; I am a writer. I write music for me, not for the world. I live by these words to this day and I continue my passion of writing music. Following your dreams can be a very difficult thing to do, especially if there are no directions on how to reach your goal. But the truth is, I AM following my dreams every time I sit down and write a new song. Famous or not, I am doing what I love.
This is the song that I wrote that changed my life.
