Taper: A Song About Creative Blocks


The nib’s broken on paper
It’s on record
There’s no taper
Printers cried and bookmarks fell off the shelf
Libraries shut down.

And I
Never let me speak to the crowds x 2

I drew on my face
But they just couldn’t understand
These things are too deep.
So next time when I write
Wake me up inside
I’d love to listen.

And I …..
Will let you speak to my crowds x2

This is a song I wrote about creative blocks and how hard it is sometimes to feel responsible for your art. I’ll be writing a post soon about creative blocks and the depression that artists often go through. I’ve been depressed for more than a year now and I’m struggling very much with it. A few months ago, I read Hemingway’s Snows of Kilimanjaro and found myself exploring the mind of the artist. I’m planning on writing about my epiphanies on how the artist’s mind works in an effort to work through my own depression and find others who are also going through something similar. I thought posting this song I wrote about a year ago would be a great way to start things off. I have more songs that I’ve written on the topic and will be sharing them here soon. Looking forward to great discussions. As always, (try to) have a great blast existing.

I have a YouTube channel!!


Dear 4D family,

Over the past 5 or so years, I’ve gotten to know you guys over some fun conversations and occasional posts. You guys have been a great part of my life. I found confidence, friendship and unity here on WordPress. I stopped uploading regularly after I got into college. I started focusing more on my music. But I always wanted to get back to you guys. And now it’s possible.

I have started a YouTube channel. I’ll be posting lots of content there that will allow us to connect even more. There are a few songs and funny cartoon videos up already. In the coming months, I also plan to start a podcast there.

This blog will remain active. Plus, from now on, you’ll be able to read the stories and inspirations behind the songs I write and the videos I make. I plan to build a small community by linking my instagram, YouTube, and blog.

You’ve been around for so long. I hope you’ll stay for the many bright years ahead of us. Together, let’s remind ourselves to have an absolute blast just existing! God bless!

Love and hugs,
