MKMMA – Week 22a – Out of the Silence, and into The Light

My silence certainly didn’t last long. I allowed many distractions to get in my way. I even cancelled my Monday off of work that I had originally intended, because of my feeling of defeat. Most important, though, I know I’m capable of not checking my phone, and not feeling helpless without a mode of communication. It was a VERY cold weekend, so my first day of being IN NATURE and SURROUNDED ended after three  and a half hours. However, the three and a half hours felt like 1, so when I learned I made it 3.5 – I celebrated!

Disappointed, but anxious for another try. As soon as this weather clears up (thank you, unpredictable Kentucky!), I am excited to follow my original idea of camping for a weekend – just me and nature. I am capable of fending for myself, and am anxious to prove to myself that I can appreciate the silence.

Speaking of that Silence – Fellow WordPress MKMMA’er Wes    ( @WesMasterKey ) posted one of my favorite songs that has gained some popularity with an updated cover by an unlikely band. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u9Dg-g7t2l4

Disturbed has another song that is speaking volumes to me at the moment, called The Light. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_LypjOTTH6E

Please – take some time to really think about these lyrics. Listen to the song. Ignore any preconceived notions you may have about “their genre” of music.

Like an unsung melody
The truth is waiting there for you to find it
It’s not a blight, but a remedy,
A clear reminder of how it began
Deep inside your memory
Turned away as you struggled to find it
You heard the call as you walked away
A voice of calm from within the silence
And for what seemed an eternity
You wait and hoping it would call out again
You heard the shadow beckoning
Then your fears seemed to keep you blinded
You held your guard as you walked away

When you think all is forsaken,
Listen to me now
You need never feel broken again
Sometimes darkness can show you the light

An unforgivable tragedy
The answer isn’t where you think you’d find it
Prepare yourself for the reckoning
For when your world seems to crumble again
Don’t be afraid, don’t turn away
You’re the one who can redefine it
Don’t let hope become a memory
Let the shadow permeate your mind and
Reveal the thoughts that were tucked away
So that the door can be opened again
Within your darkest memories
Lies the answer if you dare to find it
Don’t let hope become a memory

When you think all is forsaken,
Listen to me now
You need never feel broken again
Sometimes darkness can show you the light

Sickening, weakening
Don’t let another somber pariah consume your soul
You need strengthening, toughening
It takes an inner dark to rekindle the fire burning in you
Ignite the fire within you

When you think all is forsaken,
Listen to me now
You need never feel broken again
Sometimes darkness can show you the light

Don’t ignore, listen to me now
You need never feel broken again
Sometimes darkness
Can show you the light

Wow. Yeah? Yeah.
