Musical Medicine


As my mind races with thoughts from school,

As my dog barks, asking me to play,

As my head pounds from the stress of the day,

I put in my headphones and deeply sigh.

My mind stops its racing,

My dog stops his barking,

My head ceases its pounding,

And I feel my stress release me.

Whenever my life seems difficult,

My radio writes the prescription,

My guitar fills it,

And my trombone administers it,

My musical medication.
