Discovering the Relevance of Words
Yesterday I was asked if I ever write happy words – if my songs, or poems, or stories, are ever actually glass-half-full type pieces. The answer is simple: No.
It has nothing to do with a want to be “emo,” or “dark,” whatever. It’s simply the fact that I do not feel as if my best material contains a happy ending. I think it is genuinely difficult for an author to write an honestly happy piece of work. We are typically at our most pensive, and analytically driven when we’ve been through something that leaves its rough emotional mark, and I don’t feel as if it should be wasted by some need to only write down happy words.
Now, let me clarify this a bit. I’m sure that over time I’ve written a few happy pieces. I mean, I think it would be silly to assume that everything I’ve written has been done with dark overtones. I just think there is a place an time for everything, and when I’m on top of my game its because my sardonic sense of humor is pouring from each and every pore of my body.
So, with that, your Question of the Day:
Do you write happy words?
