MUSIC AS LITERATURE


   Yes, music can be considered as literature. When it comes down to music it always has a background or story to it. Since music can be produced in many ways, literature can be produced through musical lyrics. The differences between a novel, a rap, and a poem is the way they are portrayed. For example, a novel is written in paragraphs and grammar and all that crap, which to a rap is written into lyrics and slang. In reality I really don't see a difference between them, just how they are seen and understood; besides they all have a story to it.

             Hello 2017!

       Over a year I've noticed some changes on myself. My perspective on things are more open-minded. I'm more of a truthful person. Last year I'd be so doubtful and all vulnerable. I guess I've changed mentally wise.
