Locksmith - “Hardest Song Ever” (f. Leah Tysse)

Directed by the Young Gunz of BLK Bloc

When I was very young, maybe 5 or 6 years old, I was sexually abused. It is secret that I have kept for pretty much my entire life. I was always ashamed or too scared to tell anyone. As I grew older I buried the memory of the abuse deeper and deeper within my conscious. It was to the point where I actually forgot it ever happened. But it wasn’t until I was older that I realized the long lasting effects it had on my life. No matter how hard I tried to forget, I couldn’t erase what happened. It wasn’t until I finally acknowledged what had happen that I was able understand and cope with horrific crime that I had been the victim of. It was then when I realized that I must confront this and expose it so that I can move with my life. Learn to trust again. Learn love again. Begin to heal. This literally was the hardest song I have ever had to write. But it is also the most necessary one as well. And if my story can help anyone else who has suffered then I have truly accomplished something special. Thank you all so much.
