What a way to crush a young soul.


For years, I didn’t know what to make out of that phrase.


Words coming from the mouth of a youth music minister.


Your voice is too big. (Of course, I have an operatic vibrato and timbre- what do you expect?)


If I would have known the devil himself was at church...


The confusion that statement caused for years.


Was it wrong of me to sing with the voice I was given?


I eventually did the right thing. I left.


Next time someone ridicules your dreams, walk away immediately.


Your innate and polished capability will inevitably speak for you.


Take this advice from Yours Truly:


Fatima Morken, “The Accidental Songwriter”: Singer, Actress & Model.


You are gifted beyond your imagination.

Does this look like the face of grief? One of pain? One of sorrow?


No. I no longer grieve. I grieved long enough.


I lamented so many things and for no reason.


I was ashamed because I was taught to feel shame.


I outspokenly reject any philosophy or principality which intends to control me or harm me.


To those who were coerced by “moral” or social obligation to feel embarrassed for being human, I dedicate these thoughts of mine to you. I pray for you- for your peace. I encourage you- for your comfort. I empower you- for your success.


You always win if you arrange factors to favor your disappointing “disgraces” in life.


Did you really lose or did God make way for you to take ownership of bigger and better blessings?

Was your spirit ever just tired and broken?


You felt you couldn‘t go on?


Or didn’t want to go on?


Maybe you were just fed up.


Either way, I hope this song picks you up after a hard day or season.


You have so much ahead of you!


Dream BIG!!!


“I STILL HAVE BIG DREAMS”

Songwriter: © Fatima Morken, 2016 BMI


VERSE 1:

It’s ok because I made it to the end

It’s ok because I’m still intact and whole

The light is here

I’m walking in it

I’m breathing it

It’s ok because I don’t turn nor look back

It’s ok because I’m looking beautiful

The tunnel is traveled

I’m burying it

Forgetting it


1st PRE-CHORUS:

Ah, ah, ah, ah the relief has come to me

Ah, ah, ah, ah an eternity of promises 

Ah, ah, ah, ah


CHORUS:

I still have big dreams

I still have one hope

For my life is worth so much more than this

I still have my eyes

On the things of Heaven

For they dwell in me and my hope never dies


VERSE 2:

It’s ok because I have nothing to lose

It’s ok because I’ve lost everything

My heart is wrapped in the arms of Heaven

In the arms of Heaven

It’s ok because I’m not here for myself

It’s ok because I overcame it all

Peace covered my insufficiency

Love carried me


2nd PRE-CHORUS:

Ah, ah, ah, ah the relief has come to me

Ah, ah, ah, ah an eternity of promises

That aren’t broken ever, that aren’t broken ever 

Ah, ah, ah, ah


REPEAT CHORUS
