Through Hardships to the Stars

Where to begin… Oh, I know… I can begin saying that I love my Birthday day ๐Ÿ™‚ And that’s probably wouldn’t sound weird if I would be 10 years old, but as you know I am not ๐Ÿ™‚ But even if I am not a 10 years old, maybe you could say “Ok but why is it a weird thing to love your birthday?” And maybe even you are right, nothing is weird with this. But I met many people throughout my life who hated their birthday because of the simple fact that this remind them of aging. And of course I am agree with that, but as much as I hate aging it doesn’t interfere me to love and celebrate my Birthday. And here is why: I see it as a renewing of myself, it gives me strength to begin something new (and don’t ask me why, I don’t know how it works, but it works), or to see what I have accomplished in the last year. Like I’m said I don’t know how it works, but I literary feel myself drained in the last days of the year, and incapable of doing nothing, it’s like my this year’s battery almost dead, and when the new year begin I feel again new forces to live. And one more simple thing why you shouldn’t avoid celebration of your birthday, it’s because this was a day you were born, and you need to be grateful for that, because after all nothing matters more than life, even if this sounds too clichรฉ, but it is really the truth.

Unfortunately I was interrupted, so this sentence I continue writing on the other day, and honestly somehow I lost my thread of thought, most probably I wanted to write some more pseudo philosophical stuff, but I don’t remember now what exactly, so I will go straight to the point or to the second point of this post ๐Ÿ™‚

So I want to talk a little bit about the track I uploaded today. This song was written a looong time ago, more precisely 10 years ago. I remember I had a very hard and uncertain period in my life (of course I had many of them, I am that type of person which always attracts all the adversities). So I wanted to participate in one singing competition, (spoilers in which I never participated in the end, because my priorities changed a lot), that’s why this song never saw the light of the day, staying all these years in the dark folder named “Drafts”. But recently I was looking through all of my music and I stumbled across this track, and asked myself why in the world I never finished this song, and that day I decided that I must do this for once, and that’s actually happened sooner than I thought. Now I need to give credits to my good old friend who wrote this song 10 years ago, he was one of the first musicians I have met living in my small provincial town, so music for this song was written by Viktor Evdokimov, and I need to apologize to him that I decided to make public this song just now. The re-arrangement made for me my dear Dima (Prihodko), for those who don’t know he is the main person who responsible for all the music we have in Esperoza, he made this song more heavy and black metal-ish, which I love very much. And the lyrics were written by the younger version of yours truly. My knowing of English were very poor back then, and I assume I was even using google translate or something like that for writing this text, but I assure you in my mother language those lyrics sounds way better and less cheesy. The artwork was also made entirely by me, as photo as well as editing. So finally here is my Per Aspera ad Astra ๐Ÿ™‚ (which was the initial title).
Waiting for your feedback, and thank you for your time!

  1. Love the song Zoya. Can’t believe it was written ten years ago – you’ve always had a stunning voice ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy Birthday, and I hope this next year of your life will be even more happy and successful. Take care and have fun.

    1. Thank you Paul! The song itself was composed 10 years ago, but re-arranged and recorded something like a week ago, so I can say it’s kind of a new song ^_^
