Favorite Quote:
"History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again." ~ Maya Angelou

Music is life
It finds a rhythm,
And our hearts beat to it.
Its effect is strong in ways both good and bad
Some feed off of it,
Others avoid it like the plague,
But everyone knows its significance
Some just don’t care.
We’ve gained more control than we ever thought possible
Dirty tricks to change the flow,
Slowing down to enjoy the sound
And sometimes
Having it cut short.
