7.21 SOTD

It’s a very dark, somber Friday morning here. Oh, and it’s raining. Yeah, like we need more rain right now. Great for the flora, but we’ve had so much rain lately, it’s ridiculous! At least that means the temperature will cool down—not liking the humid, 90ºF temps we’ve been having this week.

I’ll be back later to discuss a topic near and dear to my heart, one that’s very serious. For now, here’s today’s song of the day.

I thought it’d be super cliché to pick a Linkin Park song, but Sum 41’s “Pieces” is a good enough fit for the bill. I remember when this song was released and thinking it was one of the saddest songs I’ve ever heard, and the music video does an amazing job telling the story, as Deryck is basically wandering around seeming lost and like he doesn’t belong.

I follow quite a handful of band members on Twitter and Insta—majority of what I listen to is alternative music, so definitely a number of bands—and everyone’s words just hit home. This verse from the song really triggered everything Chester’s death reminded me of:

This place is so empty
My thoughts are so tempting
I don’t know how it got so bad
Sometimes it’s so crazy that nothing could save me
But it’s the only thing that I have

Give this song a listen, reflect, have a cry. It’s okay.
