Day 1: Aaron Stokes
Brooklyn, NY, Unites States
While in deep meditation, my mind drifts to the depths of my heart. There in my heart, I find the faces of people whom I love. Of those people, my recently deceased aunt (Tawana) told me to write a song about how I feel. She asked me, “Whats on your mind?” , “What makes you happy?” As I began to explore the depths of these questions, I found the glittering shimmers of my mind, and have been able to share, through this peace offering, the sentiments of my broken heart.
