Well lookie here, it’s time once again for Tunes With Tuesday. Wait, come back! This won’t hurt you.
Some text and a music video, you can handle it. Hey you did get through Monday, didn’t you?
(Enter bribe. Give you two cookies of your chosen flavour. You sit and listen.)
Nickelback is back. And they’ve got your back. (Just be glad I didn’t pick the song “Baby Got Back” by Sir Mix-A-Lot).
Nickelback’s newest tune “When We Stand Together” combines up-tempo beats with heartfelt lyrics. Included in the chorus are these lines:
- We must stand together
- Don’t give in
- That’s when we all win
As a group, we have the potential to be stronger than each individual alone. Provided we have similar goals and inclinations. The lyrics speak to peace and hope, whether for an individual life, for a nation, or for the global community in general.
You may get knocked down but don’t give up. Let’s say your poem doesn’t get published by a particular magazine. There are other publications. There are other poems you will likely write or already have written. Stand tall, have faith in your own abilities, and you will shine. It may take time but shine you will do.
This is christyb, I understand literary rejection.
Just as you got through Monday, despite the difficulties the day may have brought you on its shoulder, you will be able to carry on. You will get through today as well.
To quote a line from “When We Stand Together,”
Just like the heartbeat, the drumbeat carries on
What messages do you get from the lyrics of this song?
