Listen

There are times in this life when we feel lost,

And times in life when we are feeling down.

But we should listen for the melodies

That carry us into a place of joy.

 

Listen for the voices that radiate their light,

And for the warm chords of triumph

That guide us in our darkest times

Like a calm ocean in the middle of a storm.

 

Music can take us to the places of our dreams,

And it can inspire us to encourage one another

To live a life that we all will remember. Not

A life that will one day be forgotten.

 

So, Music, you listen now. Take us away.

Take us to a place where we are all one.

A place where we feel like we belong.

Listen, and take us to a memorable life.

 

This poem is about: 
Me

Our world
