I find pure joy and solace in music. It brings people together. Sounds enter our ears and wander through our minds, leaving marks on our memory forever. Many songs have left those marks on me, but the one artist whose lyrics inspired me to write was Billy Corgan.
As a teen in the 90s, I listened to The Smashing Pumpkins and Billy's lyrics were so relevant to the feelings and experiences I was going through then. The songs spoke for me and it was then I knew writing would give me the outlet to speak for someone else who couldn't speak for themselves. If my words reach one person and leave a mark, my job is done.
