Summer Songwriting Contest – Week 6 Winner

Congratulations to the week 6 Teen Summer Songwriting Contest winner: Ilse V., grade 9, at Twin Hickory Library! Ilse’s song was randomly selected from this week’s submissions.

Ilse will receive a copy of Writing Better Lyrics by Pat Pattison

Ilse’s Winning Song:

One candle burns peacefully,
dimly lighting the room.
The light giving hope,
urging others to follow.

Two candles burning peacefully,
others soon to follow.
A third candle joins,
tripling the hope.

The world is changing,
and we will change with it.
We can change it for us,
and for everyone else.

Four candles burning peacefully,
more are yet to come.
A fifth candle joins,
we will get there soon.

The world is changing,
and we will change with it.
We can change it for us,
and for everyone else.

As more start to join,
bigger changes occur.
Join the burning candles,
and make the world one.
