Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


Dear Younger Me - #Music For The 4Ms Soul

Dear younger me:

You won't die.

You will not end up homeless on the streets like you believed.

You won't have to go into prostitution to survive, like you thought

You are not really alone

You will have a family to love

You will understand a possible feel love one day

You will be loved.

There is hope for your life.

Dear Younger me.......

Don't we all wish we could write to ourselves so we can have this buffer as we travel to the future?

But this songs does a nice summing up of some of life.

Enjoy and welcome to Monday's Music Moves Me.

Have a blessed week!

Dear younger me
Where do I start
If I could tell you everything that I have learned so far
Then you could be
One step ahead
Of all the painful memories still running through my head
I wonder how many different things would be
Dear younger me

Dear younger me
I cannot decide
Do I give some speech about how to get the most out of your life
Or do I go deep
And try to change
The choices that you'll make ‘cause they're choices that made me
Even though I love this crazy life
Sometimes I wish it was a smoother ride
Dear younger me

If I knew then what I know now
Condemnation would've had no power
My joy my pain would've never been my worth
If I knew then what I know now
Would've not been hard to figure out
What I would've changed if I had heard

Dear younger me
It's not your fault
You were never meant to carry this beyond the cross
Dear younger me

You are holy
You are righteous
You are one of the redeemed
Set apart
A brand new heart
You are free indeed

Every mountain every valley
Through each heartache you will see
Every moment brings you closer
To who you were meant to be
Dear younger me
