I tried to write 3 blog posts today.

But, in the words of Solange, I am weary from the ways of the world.

Call it Cause Fatigue. I have SO MUCH I want to write about. SO MANY CAUSES I want to put energy into. I'm too "broad and shallow" today and have nothing insightful to share.

So, here are 5 of my favorite songs and choice lyrics I'm turning to for refuge and solace in trying times like these. I hope these lyrics inspire you to KEEP PUSHING forward, you sexy social justice warrior, you. Because together, we are stronger: 

"Don't fear the light that dwells deep within. You are powerful, beyond what you imagine." -Noname, Reality Check

"Live your life exactly as you please. Please, please, please."- The Mamas and the Papas, Mansions

"I am not your rolling wheels, I am the highway. I am not your carpet ride, I am the sky." - Audioslave, I Am The Highway

"Had to make a break, knew I couldn't fake it any longer, any longer. Everything just aches. Soon I'd have to wake up feeling stronger, feeling stronger. On my island of dreams, with impossible schemes." - Traffic, Shanghai Noodle Factory

"But it's holding on, And it's holding strong, Even though I tried to make it, Played the part, but I can't fake it." Disclosure, Holding On
