Observation: it seems like when it comes to things like sports, or anything in the media (or even job careers), people are so ready to give up anything and everything just to get a “trophy”. But when it comes to things in life that matter most we tend to give up so easily.. Could we maybe have the same kind of drive athletes and actors have when it comes to our relationships? Maybe if we did this world would look a little different, just maybe.. 😉
This song was inspired by Robin Williams and his passing.. Like everyone, i was pretty shocked and shaken that day. I’ve never really felt the way i did with the passing of any celebrity before. I couldn’t help myself that evening and when i picked up my guitar this song just poured out.. The weird thing is that i never really knew much about Robin’s personal life until after i wrote this song from watching the news and reading articles about him. All i knew about him was his movies and how much joy and laughter and intrigue it brought me (and millions of people across generations).
The passing of Robin Williams has definitely given me a different perspective on depression and people that have to deal with that. I think everyone is susceptible to it and it mustn’t be taken lightly. I know that for me personally as an artist, if it wasn’t for my relationship with Jesus and the people around me, i could very well be in a state of depression cuz let’s admit, life sucks sometimes. So please, if you are in anyway suffering from depression don’t try and go through it on your own. Get some help, talk to someone. This journey through life is not meant to be traveled alone.
It sucks to see him go the way he did. Though we’ll never really know why he chose to leave that way, I will forever remember Robin Williams for the amazing talent that he was.His mind just worked on a different level than everyone else. The joy and laughter he gave to millions is priceless. RIP Captain.!

It’s so weird, I’ve never been this affected about the death of a celebrity.. But like everyone, I think we all felt like Robin Williams was an actual part of our lives. Kind of like that funny uncle you can’t wait to chill with at your family reunion that you only get to see every couple of years. I express myself best through song, and well, this just pour out from me the past two days.. #RIP #RobinWilliams #ohcaptainmycaptain
