Write own songs?

While I love to write & have written poems as well as my diary since I was very young, I only dabbled in writing songs when I was a kid. Simple ones that had to do with the particular season, what was going on in my life at that time, etc. I’ve kept some of them just as mementos. Only shared with my parents & husband because even though they were written when I was a kid, they are still quite personal to me.
So, it got me thinking, who has written their own songs? What inspired you? Have you had any of them published?

Wow! I'm amazed to learn that you enjoy writing and that you've dabbled in songwriting yourself!

My story is very similar. I've only completely written and composed one song entirely. Other songwriting attempts were of just ideas. I would love to get back into it again as I remember feeling the high of the creative process of songwriting. It was so easy to lose track of time, I am absolutely loved it.

When I was a kid current events loomed large. At age 11 I wrote this one, my Mom thought I might be nuts.

She said I wanna be liberated
It's time I was emancipated
Women's lib they're gonna show you a thing or two
I'm tired of washin' your pots and pans
You men gonna need another plan
Women's lib we're gonna show you a thing or two


And so on. About four more verses.

I write songs when I have privacy and alone time. I have very little if any of that at all these days. If I had some privacy I'm sure that I could write a few good ones about my current situation! 😋

Hats off to all of you!

Its something I've never really tried. I do have music or songs playing in my head a lot of the time though. That had stopped for a long time whilst my mental health was bad and during my awful marriage and subsequent divorce, so I'm really pleased its come back! :)
