‘The Lake’ started out as a poem written by me in the 1980’s. It was developed into a song in the 1990’s, but didn’t have enough lyrics to carry a full song. Last year I added lyrics to it and finally completed it. On the surface (pun intended) it is about my favourite lake on Wollaton Park in Nottingham. However, the lake is really a metaphor for a darkness in the human spirit. What do you think that darkness is? Listen to my song and let me know what your interpretation is.
‘Charlotte Rayne’ represents millions of young females worldwide who leave their education system with low self-esteem and doubts about their place in the scheme of things. I hope my song and video will serve as an inspiration to those young females everywhere on their journeys to bloom and flourish. Mark x
