Khary | Father's Gun | Official Music Video
This feels powerful from the moment I heard it. I've been fighting all kinds of depression for half my life and I think this song is a way to let it out and understand it. It's also a way to overcome it. Moving forward and keep focus is only a small way, but knowing it is a way helps. Appreciate this art.
