Where do you see your career in 5 years?
From a very young age, I felt and really believed I was going to be famous one day and My music would be heard around the world.
I would say to myself, I will make it by 25 years old, then 35, then 45, then 55. Now I am 65 years old. I believed in a dream, A feeling in my heart that it was really going to happen, but now, the only hope I have is, “My Music”.
My Music will live long past me and that's all I have to hang onto.
I am still gripping onto that one last one last straw I have left, Still hoping, Still dreaming of success. I think that seed God planted in my soul will keep struggling to break through the ground until the day I die. It is so foolish of me to keep trying and working towards something that no doubt, at my age would never be possible, but yet, here I am still trying to stay in the game. And I wonder everyday. Why do I keep believing, Why do I keep doing this to myself, Why do I continue on, when all my efforts lead to a dead end street, WHY? I cannot explain it, but...
My wish is in 5 years or sooner is that one of my original songs will be playing in an elevator or a store, somewhere, Anywhere.
