When It Hurts So Bad

On my way to work today, I popped in my homegirl and let her words fill up all of my speakers throughout my car. When this song came on though, I almost pulled over to the curb once I got off the expressway and let it all out. But I didn't.






Lauryn Hill - When It Hurts So Bad


I swear I miss L. Boogie in the music game. Even though she just dropped one real album, her music has touched soooooo many people; it is unreal. I am convinced that she is the perfect artist. How awesome is it that a person's first (and apparently only) attempt at something that involves mass response turns into such a success and captivates such a huge audience on such a real level? How awesome is that? Lauryn Hill is the epitome of greatness.


This song is so beautiful and it's how I feel right now. At this exact moment. I know a lot of my blogs are not really too personal (I am, after all, a very private and reserved individual) and even on my MySpace joint when I talked about my down periods from time to time, I never fully described the pain. But the pain is real and the pain is constant. And just when I thought it was over, turns out, I am still in pain.


Michael Jordan said that "pain is weakness leaving the body". If that's true, then that means that I am super strong, right? If that's true, I should be like a superhero at this point, right?. But I don't feel so super. I don't feel so strong. I don't feel so great. I just feel this pain. And it hurts and I feel weak.



But don't anyone fret over me. I will be fine soon. Everyone have a great weekend.




No Salutation,

NaturallyAlise: I never gave thought to the color cape lol. I just know I dont want anything that's depressing; no blues, blacks, or dark browns. Maybe a red. Yea...a red, with a gold trim.....

Eb: Timeless indeed. When her album dropped, I was only 13. I loved the music but could I relate? Not even a little bit lol. Now, 10 years later, I can say that these songs hit me at the core at times. I really do miss her.......

And dont worry, your secret is safe with me :-)

I miss Lauryn Hill. Her music really hits home. She just dipped out and never came back from hiding.
