Reaching 12

by Faith Angelina

Run with the Wind -  When I was being bullied at school, I used to let it get to me.  Then I decided to just let it go.  I would see myself running in the wind and it would drown out the other voices so I could only hear my own thoughts.

Sunday Morning Rain – I love the peaceful sound of the rain on a Sunday morning when I can just think.

Easter Lilies – Spring is a time of change and a new life.  This song symbolizes the many changes I am going through in my own life at twelve. 

Finding Hope – This song was a turning point for me as I looked for help from my destructive feelings and found the love and support that was always within my reach.

Lost – Before I reached out for help I often found myself lost in my own thoughts unable to let anyone in. 

Seasons – Just as there are seasons in a year, there are seasons in life.  I feel like I am entering the second season of my life.

Eye of the Storm -  Sometimes my feelings are chaotic but when I center myself, I can find the calm moments.

Abuelita – Last summer my Abuelita came and spent time with our family from Guatemala.  She is so sweet and loving.  She doesn’t speak English and I don’t speak Spanish, but we communicate in a way through signs, gestures, hugs, and google translate.

Chasing Rainbows – I thought I had all of the songs for this album, but this song came to me very quickly after I wrote twelve.  As a result, I bumped the original song for this spot for a future album.  We all have dreams.  This song is about finding the treasure at the end of our rainbows.  My excitement in finishing my album inspired this song and a flood of ideas for the next one.

Sunny Day – My mother took my brother and I to a second-hand store and he came home with a little toy guitar.  I was messing around with it and came up with this main melody.  It made me think of a little girl skipping on a sunny day.

Saying Goodbye – My big brother Jacob just left to serve a two-year mission for our church.  The Sunday before he left, I decided to write him a song expressing my feelings to him.  I wrote it that afternoon and played it for him the night before he left.  It expresses the mixed bag of feelings I experienced through him leaving.

Twelve –Written three days before I turned twelve, this song is my victory march, my celebration, and my statement to the world that I am coming.  Being twelve is right in the middle of being a kid and a teenager.  This song expresses my desire to take the next step.
