My WaySometimes you have to be your own inspiration.  I’ve been feeling a bit down in the dumps, so I decided to write a song about finding inspiration in hopes of inspiring myself.  I think it might have worked…

Inspire Me
by Lauren Soffer

When life is too much
Overwhelmed and such
So afraid to lose
More afraid to choose
Nearly any road
Time to break the mold

Inspire me
Require me
To be so much more
Than I’ve ever been before
My song is my prayer
And I’ll find inspiration there

Life is amusing
At times confusing
Feeling like a ghost
Of myself at most
Time to ignite
Like a phoenix flight

Inspire me
Require me
To be so much more
Than I’ve ever been before
My song is my prayer
And I’ll find inspiration there

NeverRemember life’s a dance
From your first romance
To your dying day
If you live that way

Inspire me
Require me
To be so much more
Than I’ve ever been before
My song is my prayer
And I’ll find inspiration there

I won’t speak I’ll sing
Or regret anything
Never too late
To just create
My life my way
Each and every day

Inspire me
Require me
To be so much more
Than I’ve ever been before
My song is my prayer
And I’ll find inspiration there
