Song of the Day

Macklemore – Can’t Hold Us

One of my favorite songs in my own journey. One of the things that I love about this is that it expresses the freedom and the fight we want to pursue when we find absolution in ourselves. We get trapped in this social norm non-sense belittling and trying to go in with the in crowd, but what happens when you get voted off the island? Do those who used you stick around in the end? Do you just give up and roll over and play dead? The answer is different for everyone, but for me it was a no. I may have been down and out and may have even been humiliated by my own, but one of the things I realize is that we are always told we need to change but we are never taught how. Those who say this are usually those who conform and deflecting in their own fear ignoring the injustices they convinced themselves that they experienced their whole life. For me it started personal, but then it became a mission. Where in the burning world where we all have someone, I was going to tread this journey do or die and going in it already knowing I won, because those who did me wrong and threw me like a rabid dog due to the fear of doing the right thing, wasn’t a mission of a “I’ll show you I am better than you.” It became a “let me show you how it’s done” with the hope that in their own time, they would also break from the invisible chains they confine themselves. And with the consistency of showing me they are genuinely ready stand side by side in this war of unfairness and injustice fighting in rationality, humility, and selflessly.
