Over the weekend, two songs or more specifically their lyrics seemed to strike a particular chord with me.
Song #1 – Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: American Dream Plan B (2014)
Key lyric – “I gotta dream, I’m gonna fight til I get it right”
Song #2 – The Script: Superheroes (2014)
Key lyric – “Every day, every hour, turn the pain into power”
Why do these lyrics speak to me?
Dealing with “Superheroes” first, I deal with constant pain every day in my lower back, spine and legs. But though I have my bad days and get tired easily I will not give up! Then “American Dream Plan B”, I have a dream to work in third-level education someday and I will not give up!
I am strong and determined – I am a fighter.
