It has taken a life time to feel comfortable in my skin and I have been working on being accepting of this im part to help from a song from Greatest Showman called “This is me.”
The movie tells the story of P.T Barnum with Hugh Jackman in the lead role, how the start of the Barnum and Bailey circus came to be. P.T had a unique view on the world and everyone no matter what you looked like have a place in the world.
By the reviews I knew it would be good, well, anything with Hugh usually is. I love musicals and this was an original score, taking 7 years to get it made.
“This is me” was one of the final songs written a week before the final workshop.
By the end of the scene in the movie I was in tears, every word Keala Settle (bearded women) sang, I could relate to. If you don’t have a voice yet, let this song be your voice.
I don’t have doubts about who I am. Its taken a life time to finally be OK with who I am. I am bruised and battered but here I am.
Now it’s your turn, You are here for a reason, be proud of who you are. Don’t let them bring you down. Break the barricades down. Beat your own drum. (dance like no one is looking)
Good see the movie, there are special “Sing a long” shows this coming weekend here in Australia. I have my ticket and I cant wait to go. Phil downloaded the sound track, and It gets played quiet a bit.
Here is the scene from the movie:
