music from the sky
scurrying Pitter, Patter as a mouse through a field
a rhythm without boundaries
accents and staccatos
here a crescendo as your heart takes hold
beating and pounding as fire falls from heaven
there the breath of the wind
angering you into a tantrum
From mother's cotton arms you were carried too soon, just born
unprepared to leave the nest, fearing the future
Up and Down, and Up and Down
the world, so far below
freefalling without any hope of a safe landing
and when you give up worrying
when you allow yourself to ride the wind
your trust creates beauty
as Drip, Drop, Drip
music births life

Haha. Those are definitely the worst classes. Especially anything to do with the government.
