As of right now, I am thinking about last night. Some nights, every thing just feels so perfect that you never want it to end. Personally, I believe that those nights play a bigger roll in shaping us as people than we know. Last night, I spent it with one of the greatest people I have ever met in my whole life. And honestly, I don’t think I will ever come across a person quite like this ever again. We ended up watching a movie about my favorite band, Rise Against. And I remember saying out loud,”Rise Against alone is enough for me to wake up every morning.” And the amazing person sitting on the couch next to me knew exactly what I meant. I meant that when a person finds music they can really connect to, that music has the ability to change their entire life without that person realizing it. It could be because of simply the way it sounds. But it could also be because the person who wrote that felt exactly the same way as you when he or she wrote that song. And being able to feel music, not just hear it, can do more than change a person. It can ignite a spark of emotion in them that would never be touched if it weren’t for the music. Think about it. When you find yourself at a concert, you are surrounded by people who are into the same music as you, who you can connect to just because they feel something as incredible as what you feel. Obviously, there are no words to describe it. But when it comes to music, it doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from. The music is what makes you come together. Even if someone finds a different meaning behind the song as you, it still doesn’t matter. Because for some reason, what ever is going on in your life and that other person, you both find salvation behind the same words. I think that we all take for granted, sometimes, what music can really do for us as people, and for our souls. It gives such a sense of not being alone. You can look into the eyes of someone who is into the same music as you and automatically understand them to a certain extent regardless of if you know each other or not. You can be yourself. And even if there are people who judge you for the music you are listen to, think about all of the people who will embrace you for loving it anyways.
