Sometimes, there just really isn’t anything we can do to improve certain situations.


Options run out. Patience runs out.


Simply accepting the fallacy of others’ actions as well as our own is the best closure.


We cannot blame others or ourselves.


Culpability can‘t always be justly pinned. It‘s difficult to see where it lies at times.


Why point fingers, retaliate, avenge and make matters worse?


Whose fault is it truly?


Many times, we are victims of the unfavorable circumstances this disorderly world hands us.


There is too much to think through.


Eventually, we have to permit the universe take its course and allow future events to guide us.


I penned the lyrics of this song as an observation of this human condition.


May we have the wisdom to better ourselves after every failure we encounter on our trajectory.


“I DIDN’T KNOW”

Songwriter: © Fatima Morken, 2015 BMI


VERSE 1:

I see destruction and animosity

all around me

I see how we destroy our gorgeous selves

Selfishly

I see how burdened I become at night

and in dreams

I sense my choices tarnishing the light

within me


CHORUS:

I didn't know

I didn't know

I didn't know my choices would lead me to devastation

I didn't know

I didn't know

I didn't know the love for myself would rust my soul to corrosion

I didn't know


VERSE 2:

I understand how I’ve betrayed myself

and those

Whom I told once I loved with all my heart

and chose

To ignore their plea when they asked for

my help

And I refused to lend a hand

and now I fall apart


REPEAT CHORUS


BRIDGE:

So I want to go back

and start over again

and search for those

I've hurt so much

and strictly silenced

By ignoring their pleas

and their desperate attempts

In retrospect

I regret


FINAL CHORUS:

I didn't know

I didn't know

I didn't know my choices would lead me to devastation

I didn't know

I didn't know

I didn't know the love for myself would rust my soul to corrosion

I didn't know

I didn't know

I didn't know

I didn't, I didn't know

There is something lovely about quiet time. It’s quite revelatory of our true hearts and intentions.


I find it rewarding to comfortably contemplate my core. My character.


Self-development is optimally beneficial for the advancement our existence, don’t you think?


Songwriting is my way of poetically expressing my considerations. Lyrics and vocal melodies flow directly from my head to my pen.


On this occasion, I was absorbing the tranquility of outdoor nature. Immediately, a song of my own came to me. A recollection of ideas and conclusions– delivered to me in one piece.


So here is what I wrote.


I hope it inspires you to claim victory in times of doubt; in times of fear:


”THE MISTAKES THAT I’VE MADE”

Songwriter: © Fatima Morken, 2018 BMI


VERSE 1:

“Is there a reason why I should complain?

Is there a reason why I should regret?

The decisions I’ve made

The mistakes that I’ve made

Is there a reason at all?

Why I should lament?

The mistakes that I’ve made


Is there a reason why I should accept?

Is there a reason why I should admit?

The complications of life

The mysteries in life

Is there a reason at all?

Why I should mistrust?

The mysteries in life


CHORUS:

Well, I can’t live a life of lies

I only want dreams

I only want joy

Well, I can stand strong in the storm

It’s not a hard thing

After knowing what’s peace


VERSE 2:

Is there a reason why my heart should faint?

Is there a reason my heart hesitates?

The conclusions I’ve made

The realizations I’ve made

Is there a reason at all?

Why I should think of?

The realizations I’ve made


Is there a reason why my soul should see?

Is there a reason my soul doesn’t feel?

Or questions the truth

Or question my love

Is there a reason at all?

Why I should have doubt?

Or question my love


REPEAT CHORUS


FINAL CHORUS:

Well, I can’t live a life of lies

I only want dreams

I only want joy

Well, I can stand strong in the storm

It’s not a hard thing

After knowing what’s peace”
