What Inspires Me to Sing and Write?

Some kids talk to themselves when they are bored, some don’t, others sing. Well, I’ve never been very good at recalling lyrics so I would make up the forgotten ones. Eventually I was coming up with them completely from scratch, waking up to write down new lyrics, or having trouble sleeping because I hadn’t written them down. As I got older, I only got negative responses so I mostly let it fall by the wayside. When I transferred to public school for middle school I saw their choir perform for the first time and immediately began practicing. I was accepted and realized I sought feedback in the wrong way. My audience was no longer relatives against their will. I graduated high school in honors choir, and have since performed many originals with different artists at open mics.
