I know you probably are starting to worry about my mental health, “not another dark song!” But here’s the thing, I like digging deep in to those dark moments in life, where we are forced to rethink our life. To rethink our life is something most of us should do, but we are too busy… So unfortunately it usually takes a real shock to the system to teach us the value of the time we have been gifted on this planet.
Today’s song “The Edge of Time” is a conversation between a mother, who knows her time has nearly come to an end, and her son. The inspiration for this song came from many stories of people’s thoughts, who were at the end of their roads. We seem to value wealth and hard work when we are younger, but the common regret usually at the end seems to be just the opposite, most people wish they had worked less and spent more time with their loved ones.
The regular readers of my blog know I am a big advocate of life and making the best of it. I know from time to time it gets tough and it can be hard to appreciate the great things we have, I know, it happens to me all the time. But what I am trying to et through is that too often we have excuses of why we can’t do this or that. But if we really break it down, those excuses are actually very easy to overcome. In fact there are very few truly debilitating things n our life, death being one of them. The only way we can beat death, is by making the best of the time we have left.
So yeah, once again not the lightest of songs 😀 But hey, I need to stay true to who I am as an artist 😉 If you happen to like the song, please share it far and wide by hitting those buttons below. And I’d love to hear your thoughts on the song as well.
