So, things didn’t turn out like you thought
Some days you
Feel overwhelmed & defeated
but something won’t let you stop, no
Life… didn’t go the way you planned it
Feel like your coming up
But let me you remind you in case forgot

You got the heart of a lion
You got the eye of a tiger
Right now is not the time to be quiet
So don’t just sit there in silence
Believe in rising up like a phoenix.
From the depths of the fire
If you can dream it
believe it
Don’t stop until you achieve it
Cause the one thing they stop
Can’t stop a fighter

It’s a hard road up ahead
Some days the
Feeling you’ll never make it
tries to convince you to quit,
but don’t!
Now you can make a way or you can make excuses
That choice is up to you but
Ya got what it takes but in case you forget
Let me remind you…


A warrior
No stopping time and you only get one shot
Tryina stop a wild-fire
Is like tryina douse the flame that’s in your heart

Artist Statement

Music is a universal language that speaks to everyone in some way. I create music to evoke emotion. Something I create may become a lasting memory that signifies a beautiful moment in someone's life, (including my own). Or, many times music is therapy. If a piece of art I have created can help just one person... I have done my job!
