Writing is a transformative experience.

I write songs to express myself.

I write songs to give hope.

I write songs to heal the hurt.

I write because living free from violence is a human right.

I write because I refuse to accept this is just the way it is.

I write because leaders who let their police forces jail, beat and kill people who are simply,

peacefully trying to express themselves need to know the world is watching.

I write because I take injustice personally. Because there are no throwaway lives.

I write because silence feeds violence.

I write because lyrics change music, but letters change lives.

Write a letter. Change a life.
