An ode to rejections...

Well, since it's already 4:30 on Thursday here I guess I've missed Wind-down Wednesday (don't feel bad, I'm feeling great because I took my singing and guitar lesson and that really helped relax me).

My guitar teacher is also a collaborator with some original songs that I write. Instead of doing my usual depressing gothic style music (hey, I love that dark and emotional packed music) I chose to write an upbeat, happy song based around what we all know. I thought it would be good to share with you all, it's titled "Jump".

A single voice above the noise,
A single thought of not enough.
That inch of doubt that holds you back,
Are you good or will you fall?

Facing the bumpy road that life reveals.
Jumping all the hurdles, stumbling for a few.
Feeling like the light's switched off,
Fumbling for a match.

You always second guess yourself
Over and over, facing doubt.
Never be afraid. Don't just stand there
When you can jump, jump, jump.
You'll hit the ground running if you jump.

When all you get is pain, and the ground is approaching fast
All you need is one little smile, think about that yes.
Is all the work worth the trouble?
You'll never know if you quit.

Isn't life a bumpy road, never knowing where it leads.
Having your eye on something far, watching the sun slowly set.
Taking the road less travelled isn't that hard,
Taking that chance against all the bets.

You always second guess yourself
Over and over, facing doubt.
Never be afraid. Don't just stand there
When you can jump, jump, jump.
You'll hit the ground running if you jump.

Is it worth the trouble?
Can you see the goal?
Push yourself forward,
Take that chance.
You'll never know
If you don't jump.

It's just a work in progress, and stay tuned because soon there'll be actual music for it (yes, it will even contain my voice singing... oh the horror). Just writing this really helped lift my spirits, so I hope it can do the same for some of you too.

Thanks everyone. I'm definitely working on the music and I'll definitely be putting that up once we have a solid song. I just wanted to do something that will help me when I get down and self-doubt creeps in, so I hope it helps others too.
