Music is the Key

Music is the key to make the world go round.

When the music stops, everything is silent.

We all die for a moment as we float

into the quiet abyss where out

sweet sounds no longer

fill our ears and hearts with happiness.

The voice of the beautiful child

Brings tears to my troubled face. Reminding me how to evoke the emotions

That I’d long forgotten as an infant.

The sound which makes me feel young again.


I feel the water stream down my eyes,

The cries enter my lungs as I become a slave to

the enchantress’ lament.

Her sweet coos makes all the fears melt away like the final stand of winter.


I feel whole. I feel wanted. I am re-born again. Life is anew.

Music grants me a new outlook upon my vivid world and

How I choose to paint my own destiny.

Music is what keeps me alive.

The day the music finally croaks is when my ancient temple crumbles into the depths of

Space  and  time  of  n o t h i n g n e s s.
