Validated – 1ne feat. Shan

He’s back! 1ne has been missing for a while and I’m glad he’s dripping cryatsl quality music through our ears. His new song Validated features our girl Shan who’s clearly booked and busy these days, go you!

This heartfelt song is uplifting and is a call for us as women to beleive in ourselves and not depend on the love of others to define us.

Don’t let them break your soul down

As this is Lyrical Honey you know I wouldn’t share this if I didn’t feel the words had depth and meaning. Every bar has something to hold onto and to inspire. If you’re looking for some new music with an old skool feel and plenty of celebration, begin with 1ne who is on a steady release stream. He even has another song out featuring Raye Marylin called ‘Real Black’.

This is music for the love of it.

Poetry

Pride keeps me in shatters

Pride keeps me in shatters though I’m begging to be healed Screaming for relief but my clutch will not yield

I say I’m doing fine and I promise I’m okay. But my heart is gently peeling pumping blood of disarray

Ruins

In spiritual ruins

That’s how I entered your throne room

Bright with promises you know I didn’t keep
Brokenness mixed with shouts of bravado.

I turned my back to rebuke myself, ashamed you should see me this way

Desperately trying to piece myself together

Forcing parts to fit but always losing my grip. Crying ‘cos it only hurt more.

Yet you waited

For me to forgive myself and allow your healing

But I’m too ashamed so I’ll continue hurting, yearning, bleeding
