There’s a lot going on right now. So much crying from our brothers, so much lives have lost. So many innocent people suffering from the wrath that those sitting on the higher grounds did. I don’t know what’s really happening, I don’t know what’s they are fighting for, all I know is that our world is now broken.
There were nights I am thinking of what if we all understand each other? What if we all care for each other? What if we only love each other? Is that too good to be true? Is it really impossible? We are humans, we are capable of doing things and making things happen. We are capable of talking and understanding each other. We are more capable of doing good things than bad. More capable of giving than taking all things away. More capable of offering peace than hurting each other. Are we taking this freedom so much that we already chose to put pain through others? I hope and I pray that one day we can be like brothers and sisters, we can be like friends to each other, and we can be like a family.
Whenever there are uncertainties going on around me I always dwell into music. I always listen to music. I always let music take me away from all bad things this world is having. I always let music save me from being so done, from being dumb, from being nonchalant at all. With all these hurting, killings, happening around the world, I escape into music with messages of hope, love and peace. Music that is telling a story of how great this world can be, how beautiful this world can be and how good us can be for this world.
I have made a playlist of songs which I personally grew up with. Which I have been listening since I knew what pain is.
1. Brothers In Arms – Dire Straits

6. What’s Going On – All Star Tribute
You know we’ve got to find a way to bring some lovin’ here today
7. There’s Got To Be a Way – Mariah Carey
Some of us don’t even wonder, some of us don’t even care. Couldn’t we just love each other? Isn’t there enough to share?

10. One Day – Matisyahu
I’ve been praying for, for the people to say that we don’t wanna fight no more, there will be no more wars

Instead of spreading love we’re spreading animosity, lack of understanding, leading us away from unity

If you wanna make the world a better place, take a look at yourself, and then make a change

What the world needs now is love sweet love, it’s the only thing that there’s just too little of.

From a distance we all have enough, and no one is in need. And there are no guns, no bombs, and no disease, no hungry mouths to feed.
17. I Choose Love – Shawn Gallaway
I choose to feel one voice rising, I choose to feel us all united in the strength that we can rise above
