Why make music

Throughout the past few years, as I struggled to grow up like many do, I found myself making music. Originally, I just did it for fun and because I was good at it, impressing friends and peers with lyrics off the top of my head and the rhythmical noises I made with my mouth. As some years passed I was hungry to be successful and to, more so, be heard. Now, as even more years have passed, the music has not only changed in itself, but has changed my life around it. I catch myself being disappointed by the people and life stresses around me but use music to understand them, not escape them. I am realizing that the dream is difficult, but if I do it for the right reasons, then how can I ever be disappointed in myself.
