Dreams, favorite songs, and a little Soul

I was listening to one of my favorite songs today and and it led me to thinking about the struggles so many of us tend to have.  So I decided to use it as inspiration to write.  One of the lines is “her daddy had dreams but he drank them away”.  I thought about my […]
