What is progress? For me, it was after I had finished this song. My cards spent; my corner small, but sure; and my life, moving.

Months ago, I had sent this to only two people. My love and my best friend, Obi. They called me at around 2:00 am before I had to be up for work at 5:30 am. Both were so proud of me. I had heard it in their voice like never before.

As I had laid in bed that night, I played this song until I woke up to it. I had listened to it on replay for weeks. I cried countless times because this song meant something strong to me.

I've had this song in my back pocket for months.
I was going to title it "World Peace," but that was typical me.

I felt the title "Progress" meant more.

I played this song today before uploading and tears still filled my eyes. Even as I type this.

It's not perfect to you but perfect for me. I love it. I had fun making it. And it still touches me like no other song can.

This is my anthem.

I'm selling this song to raise money for some new programs. You can buy if you'd like; however please, with respect, do not rip this song. I know you can avoid paying, but I'd rather you ask for it from me than just take it.

This song is a constant reminder of my growth, progress, friends, and family. If nothing else, ask for it out of respect for my heart. I'll give it on over.
