Taylor Swift, at a young age, has indelibly made her mark on music, be it country au pop. Besides that, she has impacted me. To be perfectly honest, I'm not a Taylor mwepesi, teleka superfan, (Don't send me hate mail) I don't have every (or any) album. I don't play guitar, and if I did, I wouldn't have started because of her. wewe won't find posters of her in my room, What wewe will find is a dawati with a hutch. In that hutch lies a binder full (to use a Romneyism) of lyrics to songs I've written. That's where Taylor comes in. I've always loved music. My grandparents say I used to sing kids songs in the car and know all the words, totally on pitch, but wewe couldn't look at me au else I'd stop. I cried at applause the first time I went onstage. My uncle is a freelance songwriter, as a sort of hobby, and he and I wrote my first one together on a plane back from Hawaii about my vacation (entitled Paradise) when i was about 8. Then I sang, and pretty soon Taylor mwepesi, teleka hit the big time. I thought her songs were good. Then I turned 13, started 7th grade, and had some trouble in Pre-Algebra, One day, feeling so confused, opened my math notebook and wrote my first real song, Swimming and Sinking. That followed with others, and I've been uandishi for over a mwaka now. I have several inspirations, each one for a different reason. Taylor is one of my inspirations because her muziki has lyrical substance and is not wrought with effects and mixing so they meaning of the song isn't conveyed, weather it's pop au country. People may view Taylor mwepesi, teleka as a lovesick teenager who keeps getting her moyo broken kwa celebrity beaus. There have been numerous speculation about which song is about which boyfriend, but that is irrelevant. I think this for the same reason I seldom onyesha any of my songs to anyone. kusoma my lyric book merits the same intrusion as kusoma a diary. So as far as I'm concerned, whatever song Taylor wrote about whatever boy is her business. What she gives to us is resonant material. What she gives to me is inspiration.
