Songwriting, like any art form can be very cathartic.  The song “Don’t U” was written as a reaction to a memory of past abuse.  It was triggered by a scene I witnessed in which a bunch of kids were running out of a house, laughing and having fun.  The adult following them grabbed the kid she could reach by the arm and yanked him backyards.  I saw the look of surprise, humiliation and fear in his eyes.  I remembered being that kid.
