Song Won

Song Won

Many years ago I experienced the power of music.

My brain was rattled in an accident.

I couldn't talk.

I would need speech therapy.

I had to write out everything I wanted to say.

I failed at speaking words.

But music spoke to me in ways I'm still discovering.

I was struggling to say anything that made sense.

How I felt.

What I needed.

Enter the music.

My mom brought my boom box to the hospital and we could sing together.

Where speech was missing, song appeared.

With each song I slowly gained the ability to communicate again.

To express.

When speech lost, song won.
