Can The Music Be Any Louder?

Musical Pandemonium

Like ivy rushing up a wall
Noise surrounding the cracks
Is there a way out at all?

Confusion.
Contusion.
Infusion of something
That should not be real.

Why is their life dependent on
What they feel?
Living moment by moment-
Hunger.
Anger.
Pain and thirst.
Saturation of these feelings
Preparing for the worst?

Silence, so golden,
Isn't Olden.
Fresh Air is all they need.
(Pandemonium chokes).

Remaining still
With no sound,
With no movement
But keeping eyes and ears open
Is better than this.

But let us take a moment
To consider the future

Let us pray for

The young souls

Saturated in the
Pandemonium.


Don't they know
That the Kingdom of God
Is Better than this?

In the book of Exodus, chapter 32, verse 18 in the Old Testament, it reads:

And he (Joshua) said, "It is not the voice of them that shout for mastery, neither is it the voice of them that cry for being overcome: but the noise of them that sing do I hear."

Some Choose Noisy Music, Others Don't

A few years ago, my son would listen to very loud music. The genre is called heavy metal. I called it "screaming rock" because that is what it sounded to me. I never restricted him playing guitar in a band that played this kind of music, because it was his time to find out who he wanted to be. I trusted in the Lord that this loud music was just a phase. The idea of noisy music inspired this poem. I never attended his concerts with his band, called "Misery Masquerade". And I always listened to my son when sharing with me his achievements in his music. I trusted that he would mature musically.

I continue to see young people and even adults enjoying and partaking in the musical genre of loud, screeching rock music. It is not my place to judge them at all. For I came from a musical background listening to all the popular music such as Grand Funk Railroad, Led Zeplin and Jimi Hendrix. It is great to see how my musical tastes did change too. Now I enjoy soft music such as Classical guitar, contemporary christian music, jazz, and some soft pop and country music.

Music is a choice, and some people make it their lifestyle. It is the way it is incorporated into a person's everyday activity that defines a person. If my house mate wants to listen to loud rock music in the common areas of the house, I don't say anything because it makes him happy. I know I am at peace within me, and that I have a choice to listen or not to listen.

What I pray for is that the loud rock music does not overtake their spiritual development. I have been even to Rock Christian Concerts like Petra and DeGarmo and Key. Lyrical content can influence the listener if they take it to heart.

It is important to be a good influence for the youth to make good decisions about music and its lyrics. Taking time to discuss it with them shows a good parental, or mentoring role.

I loved the poem. I like all kinds of music myself. Including the loud heavy metal but I never loose my fath in God. I actually will place my own meaning to some of the songs I hear, a Christian meaning.
