Music, a calmness, a therapy for the soul.
A good element to cheer, comfort, love, and console.
It is a mark of personality, emotions, art, and expression.
Showing the artist's feelings like happiness or depression.
What a fine invention it is, with its beauty and grace,
Its strength like a tiger or its gentleness like lace.
Whatever the sound or the feeling that it shows,
It always reaches the heart,
that's what everybody knows.

I think you have some writing talent, kiddo. ( I really do and I read a good bit of poetry and have quite a few friends who are writers / poets / artists.) You convey and evoke compelling imagery, clarity in vision and voice, and a certain beat I find appealing. I'd like to see what you could do if you lose the rhyming? My bet is that you find your own organic rhythm free of laws and the suffocation of rules. Just my two cents... no matter, keep writing.
