When people see one in the spotlight, often times, they only see the beauty, glamour, perfection, and fame. Little do they know that this spotlight that seems so glorious, also serves as armor. Armor that protects oneself and the ones we love from the daggers of hurt and hate people throw at us. The spotlight also disguises the darkness that we are sometimes enveloped by ̶ the darkness of emotional turmoil and pain that we are sometimes afraid to reveal to the world for fear of being misjudged. But there comes a time in life when this veil of darkness must be discarded. Because only then will healing occur. And so this is my liberation song. A song that expresses my pain with no inhibitions. Upon hearing this song, people will talk. Some may ridicule. Some may judge. But I’m not afraid. What I am more afraid of is living a life burdened by darkness. This is me, as honest as can be, my very essence.
