Death= Song of the Week

You know how they say a picture is worth a thousand words? Well in my case right now a song is word a thousand words and emotions. Death has hit my family many times and in all of them I find myself only being able to express some sort of emotion at the worst or last moment. Ive been to more funerals than my friends and possibly more than the average teenager should attend. But it is imminent for death to not strike and I would like to dedicate this post to someone Ive known since I was very young, my dog Milton. I know its like really corny but it is hurtful that a being that was there all your life suddenly vanishes and you feel empty inside. I don't know if anyone out there knows what its like to lose a life time companion that wasn't of your same specie. Anyway I would like to make the song of the week Here Without You by 3 Doors Down in honor of my dog.

I got the news of the death of my dog as I was coming back from school in one of my eternal bus rides home. I wasn't able to cry do to the fact that I was surrounded by the boys volleyball team of my grade and there was a 4 year old staring at me. I was listening to my ipod and in that moment when I thought I was about to lose it, this song came on. Somehow everything that I was feeling was explained through the beating of a drum and the soft manly voice of Brad Arnold. In a way the song was my way of venting my emotions in that moment ( I did cry) and for that I truly want to acknowledge it.

I hope you don't think I am depressed or anything. I will be my chirpy musical self soon and please don't judge this blog because of this pretty sad post.
