I stumbled across this challenge this morning when looking through my Reader feed. The writer over at “thatdiary” has been nice enough to let me join in on the fun!
This challenge involves one of my favorite things in the entire world, music! I obviously had to join if I was given permission to jump in:)
- Post a different song quote for 5 consecutive days.
- Post what the song quote means to you (optional).
- Post the song from which the quote is from (youtube link optional).
- Nominate two new bloggers every day of the challenge.
Day One Quote:
“Some day, we gonna rise up on that wind, you know,
Someday, we gonna dance with those lions.
Someday, we gonna break free from these chains
And keep on flyin'”
– “Someday” by Flipsyde.
What this song means to me:
To me, this song is an inspiring song for someone who struggles day to day like me. This song can give some people hope. The song explains how we’ll all have what we want, “someday”, we’re all gonna die “someday one day”.
But the main chorus is my favorite quote from this song. Especially in today’s world, there is a lot of “discrimination” going on lately. Whether it’s against certain races, certain religions or cultures, the LGBTQ community, or hell, being a woman and standing up for our rights is frowned upon in 2017…
We need to listen to this, we need to stop and just listen to these actual lyrics. It doesn’t matter where you come/came from, it doesn’t matter where you end up in the end, someday we will all die.
So why not while we’re here, let’s rise up on the wind, dance with the lions, and break free from our chains to keep on flyin’.
To me, this means, rise up against the haters and people that knock you down. Dancing with the lions, obviously coming together with everyone even the “wicked”. Breaking free from our chains, the chains we’re so unaware of having. The chains that our government has on us, to break free and live the life we want to live. Keep on flyin’, doing what we love the most, flyin’ by in live, everyone feeling like their flyin’.
