I found a new favorite song. I’d heard P!nk had a new album coming out, so when I saw @RachelFirasek’s post on Twitter that she was listening to P!nk I went out investigating….
And found THIS:
Now, personally, I find some of P!nk’s music…disturbing, in both a good and bad way. Most of my friends know that the F-word makes my ears bleed (LOL) and P!nk has been known to share the word in her songs…even titles of her songs.
But if I look past that and really read some of her lyrics. That girl has some seriously powerful songs. She really gets you thinking.
In TRY, I find these lyrics the most powerful.
Where there is a flame someone’s bound to get burned.
I’m sure you can interpret that a million different ways. But it struck me in this way….
Fire is passion. Passion not just for another person or love, but in throwing your heart and soul out there for all to see. That’s what it’s like with the books I write. Writing is a passion of mine and it’s a bit of my soul out there, vulnerable with each book that gets published.
I’ve gotten burned. I will continue to get burned. But like P!nk says in her next phrase:
But just because it burns, doesn’t mean you’re gonna die.
So true. Not everyone will like my characters, my writing style, my stories….but that’s okay. I can’t not write. So, if you’re venturing out, doing something you love and you get a bit scared.
Don’t. You’ll possibly get burned, but you won’t die.
