Rhythm of Life

In the rythem of life, we might forget to tap our feet,

Or to tilt our heads, in order to keep the beat.

We can forget to look over the peice before we play the song,

And we forget the notes, so we randomely play along.

We forget when we used to play as smooth as a harp,

And don't tune when we know we're too flat or too sharp.

Yes, in the rythem of life, it might be hard to play well,

Especially when no one helps when behind you fell.

You can't play high, because you're afraid to play too low,

Just remember when you perform it will never be solo.

Combining two things (music and philosophy in this case) shows real patience and hard work. I think you spelled rhythem wrong but the editors can fix that up. Nice work!

Thank you for that. I did spell "rhythm" wrong in the poem (as you also did in your comment, I see). I appreciate your kind comments and criticism.
