“Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.”–Victor Hugo
I remember a conversation I had in eighth grade with a few of my girlfriends. One of them asked if we would choose to be blind or deaf if we had to choose one of them. I, within a second, answered that I would choose to be blind. Although I am very thankful for my sight, the thought of never hearing another note, melody, or a beautiful lyric is something I couldn’t and still cannot imagine.
I believe that music is one of the greatest gifts we have been given. Music has been and always will be a huge part of my life. It conveys stories and feelings in a way nothing else does. I personally think that music is an important outlet and that it is a main pillar in society. I don’t think people realize how important it really is. Just imagine taking music out of movies, or just out of everyday life. I creates thoughts, feelings, and connections between people. The only way that I can explain it is that it is simply a gift and that it cannot be defined.
Music it a very personal thing. Everyone relates to it differently. Music helps me remember, and it lets me forget. Sometimes music is the only way I can express certain feelings. There are so many songs that force me into a mood of nostalgia that puts me at ease, and then there are others that just help me cope with stressful situations in life. When I am sad, there is music. When I am lonely, there is music. When I need to focus on work, there is music. It is my pit stop in life, and once I’m good to go again there is music again.
I think I have made my point. Music is a HUGE part of my life and I do not know where I would be without it. If there is one thing I cannot understand it is when someone can say that they don’t care for music. That is a foreign thought to me.
