A Poem in Haiku Verses

 

music and rhythm

what am i feeding myself

it’s called sanity

 

playing and singing

risking being who i am

expressing myself

 

singing a love song

or even playing dem blues

touches me deeply

 

from deep within me

something that i can’t avoid

it’s my heritage

 

friends and family

what would i do without them

life would be empty

 

 

resist temptation

and what does this do for me

it makes me stronger

 

keeping promises

develops my character

my integrity

 

helping people grow

and just how does this serve me

it’s what i do best

 

happiness secret

is living in the moment

it’s what i strive for
