Songwriting is such a healer

So I wrote a song today that felt so good to get out! I've learned that not always do songs have to have a resolution or be happy. My whole album does pretty much. But lately I've just been writing and letting things out really real things. Not that anything on my album isn't real. I dont know its hard to explain. Today I wrote a song that I just was laughing about. It was about someone that I dont like very much...we all have those kinds of people in our lives. Whenever I listen to the song Hate On Me by Jill Scott it makes me feel better. My song is pretty much the same talking about someone whos a total hater and will never change. Just a real bitch. Ha. I wrote it all out in literally ten minutes...just goes to show when you need to get somethin out you best get out of the way. Song writing is a great way to deal with issues in your life. Its been so great for me. I hope others can relate and really feel the songs that I've written so far. If someone is talking behind your back settle it then and there. If they deny it and act all sweet at least you did your part and frankly at least your being real. There will be haters your whole life unfortunately. Since i've been working on my album even close friends will say "Oh I dont have that talent" they mean they dont have the talent to write songs, arrange, sing etc. But how about being happy for me for once? Damn. I'm not saying everyone is like this but I can't tell you how many people have said this. I have not had an easy life. In fact i've gone thru some really incredible hard things. But I've always risen to the top because I'm a fighter. Keep it real guys!
