"My pen is the barrel of the gun. Remind me which side you should be on."

Music bleeds into my ears and
Travels through my bloodstream
Straight to my heart
No matter how desperate things my seem
My music will pull the world and me apart
No longer can the world discourage my dream
While I listen to this musical, lyrical art
Nothing can keep me
From being who, or
What I want to be
I close my eyes
And become free
To roam the farthest corners of my mind

"See, we don't really care who you are;
Everyone is capable of looking up and wishing on a star.
So catch it, so contagious, this day-dreamer's disease,
And hope can be your sword, slaying darkness with belief."

I really love this! :) I've read this before, actually...I don't know why I've never commented! The flow is great and I love the meaning to it! :)

Gil: I would like you to read my novel and get your opinion. 
Ernest Hemingway: I hate it.

Ernest Hemingway: If it's bad, I'll hate it. If it's good, then I'll be envious and hate it even more. You don't want the opinion of another writer.

Thanks so much!  To answer the question, my friends and I formed a club where we have nicknames, and mine is DinoNugget in homage to the dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets that are yummy and the official snack.

Great poem!  I love how you describe the feelings you get when you listen to music.  There's only one small typo: "No matter how desperate things my seem."  Did you mean "may"?

There's an intensity to this, a driving force of strength, that I really like. :) Very impressive stuff!
