Words are the pictures that give life to our thoughts and dreams. As we reach out to tell the stories that are each of us We gather in these images to recreate our lives again and again for those we know. Without those words, there are no memories, no dreams, nor even song. Our lyrics for life share our everyday moments with a world that is afraid to listen, But cannot even try to turn down the ever increasing volume that pounds each heart’s rhythmn daily. There real life can be found, but no one opens eyes to hear Each voice. We can only stand strong within the shadow of a me.
