Yvette Young: palimpsest excerpt

I’ve been too afraid to revisit this melody because of the traumatic memories attached but I had a breakthrough last night and finished a song. Here is a snippet...I called it ‘Palimpsest’ because rather than discarding this old idea, I reworked it into something new and hopeful.

Your hurt might linger but it doesn’t get to define your present. Sometimes, closure doesn’t come in the form of forgetting or effacing your past pain, but rather giving that pain new context.

After all, you have survived. You’re here now, stronger than ever with more wisdom and a greater capacity to love, and that is so very beautiful. đŸ–€
