Mary Lambert “Secrets” – JayWTaylorBlog Song of the Month for May 2015
I’ve got bi-polar disorder My shit’s not in order I’m overweight I’m always late I’ve got too many things to say I rock mom jeans, cat earrings Extrapolate my feelings My family is dysfunctional But we have a good time killing each other
They tell us from the time we’re young To hide the things that we don’t like about ourselves Inside ourselves I know I’m not the only one who spent so long attempting to be someone else Well I’m over it
I don’t care if the world knows what my secrets are I don’t care if the world knows what my secrets are So-o-o-o-o what So what So what So what
Does it get any better than having one’s own blog? I feel like I am the editor-in-chief of the Los Angeles Times and that it is okay to put my storywith my byline above the fold. I mean it. I am really excited about this. I have wanted to create and publish my own blog for some time now. And yet, for a number of reasons, I have not acted on that impulse. For years I have actively written for and on behalf of others – individuals, businesses, causes, non-profits, and more – but I have been reluctant to share my own voice and feature my own content. I just wasn’t ready to do so. And now, again for a number of reasons, the time has finally arrived for me to create and post my own meaningful materialand own my voice; for I believe that I have something significant to offer. I feel inspired to share.
