PROMPT: Song Writing Competition 2019

how will I ever be missed
when I'm too attached to characters who don't even exist
I know it's not easy to take a risk
but these two worlds cannot coexist

for it's easier to care
from the comfort of your own armchair
the words lift off pages and last through the ages

Nourishment

PROMPT: Bread and Light

1. God. My everlasting source of peace. A guiding hand in a storm full of wind trying to pull me in different directions.
2. Education. The furtherment of my mind. Pushing myself intellectually to think conceptually in new ways. 
3. Music. The familiarity of practice rooms and the comfort of my flute. The way notes dance off sheet music. 
4. My Friends. Whom I talk to about everything from the futility of our existence to YouTube videos.
