People do forget that sometimes it is not easy to be told you are good at something. You always feel the burden to make those who have faith and hopes in you proud, you walk cautiously so that you don’t do anything shameful and hold your head up high so that you don’t show the burden you carry. Yet whenever I think about how so many people push me to be better at what I do, how many people tell me to use my talent and shine, I remember those who were born in positions of “Total Responsibility” in that from the moment they utter their first cry, the burden weighs on them, those of Royal Blood who are limited in life because they are expected to be “Prim and Proper.” I am not a Princess, nor am I a Queen or a President but I am an Artist, I draw colours of my Soul with my words and paint a picture of what I feel with my voice, my heart sings and lips pour it out for the World to hear. I might not be the best at it but I have learnt that when others see something bigger than what you think about yourself in you. Then it is time you stepped up and stopped thinking it is a burden but a gift, to shine and share what God gave you with the World.
I will sing, I will write, I will paint a canvas for everyone to see and sing with me….Soon!
