Not By Choice

Last November I wrote a song for World Diabetes Day which I played on a vlog post.

It was one of the first songs I have ever written that honestly came to me on the drive home from work! After the vlog went up, I had a lot of people asking for a copy to download. As much as I liked the words and the way I sang it, it was not complete.
