Let the Music Save Your Soul.A Poem by Laine Johnson
in the style of something TWLOHA might blog.
Sometimes all it takes is a song,
a beautiful melody to lift your heavy heart up off the floor.
Maybe it's the drums,
keeping you in rhythm with something besides yourself and all of your burdens.
Could it be the words that speak to you like such simple poetry?
Perhaps it's an upbeat tune that dries your eyes,
on that lets you forget the world for a while.
A song that tells a story, the simple strum of a guitar,
or a string quartet that helps you to sleep and keep sweet dreams.
It could be a song that reminds me of someone you love,
someone you've lost, yourself,
or the person you wish you could be.
This anthem, be it a harmony of hope, a battle cry,
or a way to get you through the day,
it will always be there, ready and waiting to be heard.
Whether you are looking for hope, have found it,
or want to give some away,
there's undoubtedly a song in your heart.
It's safe to say, when we struggle to communicate or feel all alone in this world of six billion people,
music always says more.
And once it enters us,
gets in our heads,
writes upon our hearts,
it never leaves us.
