I wrote this for a contest. If you were an instrument-what would you be? This is what I would be...and why.

I'd Be The Screaming Guitar
A Story by Jennifer

If I were a musical instrument-what would I be?
It would have to be something that brings out the essence of me.
A piano-I thought-no that's not right-
A violin is good-but still not quite,
what I had in mind to be...
So I pondered what instrument best describes me...
Would I be a flute?
Or a horn-toot, toot?
I've never been one to toot my own horn-
Would I be a harp on a beautiful sunny mourn?
Would I be the pounding drums?
or the banjo that strums?
All of these instruments are great-
But none of those would tell of my fate.
If I were a musical instrument-
What would I be?
I would be the SCREAMING guitar-come and play me
Screaming out against injustice everywhere,
Giving the victims hope and forever showing them that somebody does care.

I'd be the guitar too. So much freedom, and rage in the notes. Savage and sweet at the same time.... Great work. Wonderfully written. 5/5
