If I could earn a living doing what I love most, it would be singing! Songs today are about love, romance, sex, guns, drugs, etc. While some of those things are okay to discuss in song lyrics, I want to sing about how to be self-confident. Singing is a big passion of mine and I know the effects that lyrics can have on young people. Instead of singing about how to get a boyfriend or going out to parties, I want to sing about how to love yourself, how to give yourself the respect that you deserve. My lyrics and songs would change the world because it would make people think about the way they treat themselves and maybe even the way that they treat others. When you have more respect for yourself, you show that same respect to other people around you.
My first step in actually achieving this would be to write all the positive emotions that one might feel, and include that with good traits. Then I would start to make rhymes and rhythms and beats to contribute. My next step would be to perform. I want people to hear what I have to say because the more they listen, the more they will understand.
