Day 76: “Pretend that you’re a singer or you’re part of a band. What do you want to call your first album?”
That is really an easy one because I would call it the same as my blog an ocean roars. I would use small letters. It represents me using my voice to speak my feelings, my thoughts, my ideas, my heart, my everything.
As a child, I was silenced. I could not speak. I hide under the bed to get away from everyone. I sometimes slept under it. It was safer for me. I did not exist.
Today, I have more of a voice, even though some people want me to not speak out. I want to break away from all the things that trap me from being me. I feel weighed down people who suppress me from growing. They are pushing me down with their words, actions, reactions, and hate.
My second album would be called sad robot boy. I am a sad robot. I feel programmed to be what others want me to be, but I want to rebel so I can finally be happy. I will never rebel because I am not strong enough. I will always be sad.
Cycling, writing and music are things that help me deal with PTSD. It is not enough, but it helps. I wish I could cycle more.
