Ed Sheeran’s Musical Journey

Scatter Seeds Of Kindness

If you have a friend worth loving
Love him. Yes, and let him know
That you love him, ere life's evening
Tinge his brow with sunset glow
Why should good words ne'er be said
Of a friend till he is dead?

If you hear a song that thrills you
Sung by any child of song
Praise it. Do not let the singer
Wait deserved praises long
Why should one who thrills your heart
Lack the joy you may impart?

If you hear a prayer that moves you
By its humble, pleading tone
Join it. Do not let the seeker
Bow before his God alone
Why should not thy brother share
The strength of ‘two or three' in prayer?

If your work is made more easy
By a friendly, helping hand
Say so. Speak out brave and truly
Ere the darkness veil the land
Should a brother workman dear
Falter for a word of cheer?

Scatter thus your seeds of kindness
All enriching as you go
Leave them. Trust the Harvest-Giver
He will make each seed to grow
So, until the happy end
Your life shall never lack a friend

He was known to be extremely introverted among his school members and always remained secluded amongst his friends. He had one elder brother, Matthew who was a music composer, and even his family owned a music studio. Therefore, Ed was introduced to music in his early life. However, his struggles began when he had to undergo surgery that left him with a speech disorder and lazy eye. Ed was devastated. Being a young child he had to face a lot of bullying. His confidence was extremely shattered. Moreover, we all know how red-headed people are extremely bullied in school. He was made fun of for his physical features.

However, this led to him realizing that his being famous had nothing to do with his physical features. Ed worked extremely hard and he was blessed. His speech disorder never seemed to bother him during singing. However, when he began singing, he planned to get speech therapy, which was unsuccessful. His father gave him Enimen records so that he could practice. Enimen raps skills deeply touched ed. This was a major breakthrough in his career. He then began singing at multiple shows and even sold his CDs which gained huge fame. Ed made his youtube channels where he posted his covers. His videos got multiple followers. Jamie Fox, one of the most influential people, helped Ed record his music and soon his music became #2 on iTunes. Success followed him then.
