Hello All
My name is Curtis from Oklahoma
I am 59 years old and have never written a song until now. My wife of 17 years took my kids and left me 3 months ago. I have been dealing with kidney cancer and a number of other struggles, I feel like my life has spiraled out of control- I thought maybe putting some of it into words in a song would help me cope with the challenges I am facing so I wanted to share my song here
Thank you

Welcome Curtis. Putting stuff down into lyrics is a great way of expressing yourself. And you clearly have a lot of emotions and experiences to draw on. Get to it. :)

Hi Curtis
I got into writing in a similar way, nothing like what you are going through but I was miserable, which is reflected in what I have written many times. Writing can be very therapeutic and also a great pastime when things are not so bad. Looking forward to reading what you have to offer.
Paul

Hi Curtis and welcome!

Sorry to hear of your tough times. Writing and music, much like talking about it, can be very helpful in dealing with life's struggles. Some great songs have come out because of it.
Wish you all the best and hope to talk with you soon.
