"Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid"

Trapped inside a stream of noise
Plastic smiles and pulsating veins
Swollen eardrums continue to absorb
What makes him who he is

The savory taste of blood and sweat
Of hopes and dreams and sound
Blistered hands and immense exhaustion
Are worth the brief euphoria

The piercing light upon his skin
Melts away a nervous mind
A striking conversation erupts
Between a finger and a string

I love this! It really captures the moment right before a concert

The descriptive language of this poem elicits the true intensity between a musician and his artform. Each aspect of the human senses is graphically represented and well defined in this beautifully executed piece of writing. My compliments to its author!
