I have quite a few that speak to me actually, but one of the songs that was given to me by someone else is Skyscraper. Actually Skyscraper and Warrior both, but Skyscraper has been a favorite song of mine for a while, both by Demi Lovato.
Some of the lyrics that I really like are "All my windows still are broken/But I'm standing on my feet" and "Go on and try to tear me down/I will be rising from the ground"
One of the reasons this song was given to me was the first lyric. I've been through a lot of major traumas in my life, one of them being my brother who was killed the year before I joined HOL. What I like about this lyric is that it's still really difficult to deal with him being gone, but I am getting through it, the same as the other traumas I've experienced. Although they still impact me, I'm not letting them control my life anymore. As far as the second lyric, I really liked this one because I was bullied in school, and I didn't have any friends except maybe one or two at the academy, if I could even call them friends. I always had people calling me names and trying to make me feel less than as a person, but since I've left high school, although things have gone up and down, they are mostly going up. I'm continuing to better myself as a person and in doing so, I'm rising above all of that.
The song is empowering and makes me feel like I'm not alone and that I can move past what has happened to me.
