Lying in bed with my music playing,
I think. I think about all the ups and
downs of that day, as I get my bearings
from the day when I feel very outgunned.
Then the song that completely relates plays,
and it's like the entire universe
freezes, if only for that certain phrase.
The world just stops until the final verse.
But music is also what makes life shine.
It comes in everyday things, like long strolls,
hearing the waves descend on the shoreline,
or the sound of wind rustling through the shoals.
Music is a gateway into the soul.
It helps people understand how to grow.
