Free Like Music

Free Like Music short poem

Photo by Au Kirk

I want to be free like music.

Free like soft tones, melodies,
voices, and patterns pulsating

I want to wake up freed by music
in mornings when the mind is slowly,
steadily, waking up.

I want to be free like music.

Like music meandering in my soul
pushing me to higher forms of
consciousness and creativity.

I want to dance to music so that it
frees my spirit. My spirit is alive
and music will take me on a ride
revealing my truest self.

I want to be free like music; free like
jazz; free like lounge; free like house
music; free like programmed drum
beats; free like music without any
words, messages, speech.

I want to be free like music.

I want good music to reach the children,
the trees, the bugs and the bees, the lonely
and the sorrowful.

Music can be so liberating and powerful!

I want to be free like music.

Music has no boundaries and no restrictions.
I discover this as I listen. As I listen I am free.

Just Like A Pearl short poem

Truth you seek, Character you weave The beauty you perceive, with the eyes austerely. Respect you earn, sacrifice and yearn Leaders you breed, Monarch unveiled. Mother, sister, lover or daughter The legacy you leave of your charismatic nature and affection
