What My Chemical Romance Means To Me

I herd my first MCR song years ago (the song was Dead!), and I had an instant connection. I listened to more songs by them and so many emotions were brought out of me with each song. Yes, I was really young, about 6 years old, and I loved them so much. Then about a year later, the hell in my life began. My dad left, (I rarely ever see him anymore), trust was gained and lost, I was homeless for about a year, but I would rather not get into the details. I'm still struggling but it's much better than it was. While I was going through those tough times, I listened to MCR, so I wasn't really alone. I listen to them now and realized some of the songs told a story of my life, songs such as Helena, Welcome to the Black Parade, and even one of the newer songs such as The World Is Ugly etc. I had a different connection with each song, and each one brought up memories. When I found out that My Chemical Romance had ended, I was devastated at first. I grew up with their music, they felt like old friends to me, so it was hard to take in. I knew that they had their reasons. Now I still listen to these songs at age 14 looking back at the memories that these songs bring up, all the good times and bad times I've been through, I'm glad that I was never alone, they helped me through my struggles when nobody else could. I am truly thankful of the hard work hey have done. So if MCR sees this post or not, there is one thing I want to say. Thank you, because of your work I know that I can get through the hardest parts in life, and if I feel a little down I can always put my headphones on and know I'll be okay. You may never know how much you guys really mean to me, but for the most part, thank you for always being there when no one else was. I can never thank you enough.
