Heal The World

Heal the World

#100DaysOfBlogging Day 7

There are a few things I find to be cathartic. One of the important ones is music. I feel listening to a beautiful song can help improve the mood. When I’m really feeling low, I listen to music. At times, I feel the need to listen to Linkin Park, and at other times, I enjoy some melodies in Tamil. Be it the tune or the lyrics, or both, a good song is one that I enjoy.

There are so many songs I love, that it’s hard to pick one as a favorite. But to write on a hundred different songs isn’t possible either. When I look back at September and think of what has happened around me, one song that comes to mind very quickly is Michael Jackson’s Heal the World. There are very few songs that have stayed in my playlist since years. This is one of them.

The song is one that has been a favorite, because I was part of a group that sang it during morning assembly in high school. I find the lyrics meaningful and inspiring. Not many people think of that though. It calls on the world to make a better world for the next generation. It asks us why we’re crucifying the earth’s soul with war and such. That that better world could happen if we cared for the living.

If you haven’t heard the song yet, please do hear it. It’s really beautiful.

From 23rd September, exactly 100 days are left in the year, the idea is to write on each of these days. A few other friends chose their own themes. I thought I’d collaborate with Aniesha bon on the challenge. We’re choosing topics on alternate days, and each day, we’re writing on the same topic too. She chose the topic FAVORITE SONG for Day 7.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
