A friend recently shared Johnny Cash’s song, Hurt, with me. I couldn’t believe I’d never heard it before. It was me. It’s the theme song of my life. It seems that no matter how hard I try, hurting myself, whether physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually, is the only thing I really know how to do. Any time I start making progress I do something stupid that puts me back at square one. Maybe even before square one. And then I have to work my way up, only to slide back again. It’s a constant game of Chutes and Ladders, only I never make it to the finish. And that’s all on me.

One thought on “Hurt

  1. Nine Inch Nails has an incredibly powerful cover of “Hurt”, I think you’d like it.

    Also, check out Disturbed doing “The Sound Of Silence.” The music by itself is soul-resonating, but watching the video for it is resonates so much that a part of me shatters each time (in a good way, I think). With your music background, I think you’ll see what I mean… Crank the volume 😉
