"When you wish upon a star..." -Walt Disney


Just random keys on a piano,
Slamming down by worn hands,
Life seeming to pass by
Before his very eyes,
The hardship,
The sorrow,
The love,
The dreams,
Being slammed down on random keys.
His life laid out in a single song,
The inspiration of life
Seeping through black keys.
Young years,
Old years,
Memories and nightmares
His whole life
Being played on random keys.
Are we all the same?
Are we all just random keys
Being played on a piano?
Its all up to you,
Make your song,
Sing it loud!
Never let go!
Just random keys,
White,
Black,
Whatever you prefer,
Show your song to the world,
Sing it proud,
And play your random keys.

This poem was inspired by one of my close friends talking about writing a song and using "random keys"... from then on, my imagination took over.
