The Music of Your Soul

Play the Music of Your Soul

As I was going about my morning chores, I had my usual Sunday music playing in the background. When one particular song began, I stopped and truly listened. In fact, I turned up the volume and replayed it several times.

This particular song is one that touched me years ago and still does so today. You may have never heard of the artist, but she is an amazing woman that I was blessed to meet in Saginaw Michigan. I doubt that Sharrie Williams is aware of how often I think of her or how much she touched me when we were together. However, the first that I heard this song and the way that she performed it, truly warmed my heart.

“Through each of us there flows an energy
from where we came to where we go.
The big, the little things, that we all do and say,
affects the world more than we know.

Each of us affects the flow
the life we live, the love we show.
So, let’s lay down the weight of things we can’t control
and play the music of our souls.”

Simple words that hold so much meaning.

I sit and reflect on this now due to a devastating event that took place this year. We are used to disappointments in our lives. They happen on a daily basis regardless of who we are. However, when that betrayal is from someone that you called a dear friend and you neglected your own priorities to assist with theirs…that has a lingering and sometimes debilitating effect.

I will not dwell on something that cannot be changed. People show you who they are by their actions more so than their words. And regardless how incredibly devastating and malicious this attack has been, I will not allow it to plague me any longer. I do not need to try to understand why this happened. There is no sane explanation for something this vile. What I have done is accept that it happened and moved on.

That brings me back to my dear friend Sharrie.

“So, let’s lay down the weight of things we can’t control and play the music of our souls.”

I released that weight as I have in the past. One misguided person cannot change who we are or extinguish the light within us. We have to give them the power to do so. That is one thing that I have never done or will do. Regardless of what undeserved hatred is thrown at my feet, I will not bend and lift it from the ground. I will continue to play the music of my soul and project the love I have inside of me.

Thank you, Sharrie Williams for being who you are. God has blessed you with an amazing gift and I am blessed to have you as my friend.

Play the Music of Your Soul Lyrics

“Through each of us there flows an energy
from where we came to where we go.
The big, the little things, that we all do and say,
affects the world more than we know.

Each of us affects the flow
the life we live, the love we show.
So, let’s lay down the weight of things we can’t control
and play the music of our souls.

Hear it in the sounds of silence.
See it when you close your eyes.
You will know it, when you open up your heart
and let the light of love inside.

On this journey that we travel
there is no need to lose the way.
For when we walk together guided by the spirit,
home is but a step away.

Each of us affects the flow.
The life we live, the love we show.
So, let’s lay down the weight of things we can’t control
and play the music of our souls.
Play the music of our souls.
Play the music of our souls.
Play the Music.

Author: Aaron-Michael Hall

Aaron-Michael Hall is a native of southern Illinois. She was born and raised just across the Mississippi River from St. Louis, Mo. After moving about the country, she has returned to her roots and where this journey began. When she was younger, Aaron-Michael would get lost in the fantasy and sci-fi worlds created by Andre Norton, N.K. Jemisin, R.A. Salvatore, Octavia Butler, Ursula K Le Guin, and R. Scott Bakker. Being from a large family, Aaron-Michael would often steal away high in a tree or nearby wood seeking solitude. While enjoying the peace her natural surrounding provided, she created her own worlds and languages. For hours, she would be lost in the magnificence of her own imagination. Some characters and elements created then are used now in her current series. The Rise of Nazil is the first novel in the trilogy of the same name from this new author. It is an intelligent and intriguing read with a host of characters. Seed of Scorn (book 2) and Piercing the Darkness (book 3) complete The Rise of Nazil trilogy and are all available on Amazon. When asked why she wrote this series, Aaron-Michael simply said, “It needed to be written.” Blood of Oisin is the title of the first novel in The Shifter trilogy that releases February 2017. It is her hope that the readers enjoy the wonders of Faélondul even more than she enjoyed writing about them.
