Music Poem

Music Overwhelms Every Part Of Me

My passion for music takes many forms. I play whenever I get the chance, and it's one of the things I enjoy the most. I wrote this after a long day of playing, when I was still a little high on my music. I truly believe that anyone can find serenity within its grasp. You just need to look.

You Only Need To Look


Published by Family Friend Poems September 2016 with permission of the Author.

When my day is heading down,
With no solution I can see,
I need only look around.
It's flowing all around me.

It's gliding on the breeze
And falling with the rain.
It comes with gentle ease,
Relieving all my pain.

And slowly, I feel it starting,
Something from within me.
Then quickly it comes roaring,
Filling every gap and cavity.

It's welling up inside,
I have to let it out.
It's like a roaring tide,
Washing away guilt, fear, and doubt.

It's shooting through my veins
And surging through my mind.
I barely control the reigns.
It's growing stronger all the time.

It's taken me away,
A huge smile on my face,
Because today's my lucky day.
I'm going to a very special place.

Soon it all comes spilling out,
Helping me make wonders.
Things I never knew about,
Things I'd normally think are blunders.

First it takes me fast, then slow,
The sound gliding through air,
Like an arrow from a bow,
Or the flight of a frightened hare.

Alas, it's now coming to an end,
The final note rings true.
Sending a beautiful message
To me and to you.

That note has built us a bridge
To a place of awesome bliss.
Where the contents of its message
Are always proven to say this:

Music is all around you.
You just have to find it.
And I promise once you do,
Your efforts will be rewarded.

And anyone can sit
And waste their life away,
But the person who finds music
Will never live that way.
