All or Nothing

All or Nothing

A Poem by A poet's heart

A passion for music


I can give you my all or nothing at all.

A beautiful sound that’s rich and round,

Or an unruly squeak that’s lacking technique.

I can be motivated and dedicated,

Or I can procrastinate and put off our date.

I can devour an hour without will power,

Or I can stay for a minute then say that I’m finished.

I can play you a symphony from the new age,

Or I can play you 4’33 by John Cage.


I can give you my all or nothing at all

Because I can give you my soul or not feel whole,

But living life with such strife just doesn’t feel right,

And I wish a middle ground didn’t have to be found.
