Mental Melodies

As I sit in the library while I’m supposed to be doing homework I have drifted off into that beautiful place that only beautiful music can take you to. Not to sound old or anything but I find it such a tragedy that my generation and those to come have not found the beauty in REAL SOUL music. From Frankie Beverly, The Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, Rufus & Chaka Khan, all the way to present day Ledisi & Sade (to name a few). The feelings that they bring makes you take pride in being who you are and the way God created you. Now it seems like anything goes no matter how degrading it is and the sad part is people actually enjoy and support it. For once, I just wish people could feel the confidence, happiness, and peace that soulful music can bring to you. I wish they could visualize themselves in a place that they never imagined in their minds doing all the things that their hearts desire. I say all this to say, Music is Powerful. It influences how we think, talk and even react. So how exactly are you leading your mind?
