What is music?
An escape to another world?
The one place you can go where no one will judge you?
A free world of magical excitement?
A slow ride through a tunnel full of emotions?
A black hole that takes in your soul and never lets go?
The one thing that puts your problem into perspective?
Maybe it is all of the above.
Music is a wonderland.
A place full of new things to explore.
My music is my paradise.
And if you listen to it long enough...
You will find your paradise in it as well.

The author's comments:
I was sitting here reading other peoples poems when a song came over my i-pod. It was a song that has got me through a lot of hard times. This poem was right off the top of my head but I just felt as if I had to write about music.

"My role in society, or any artist's or poet's role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all."


I love this. =) I have a passion for music and I love how you described it!
