The Sound Of Distraction

Let It In

A noise that I normally hear

Now bothers me to great lengths

The t.v. with it's persistent chatter

I look away but each vibration creates frustration

Unable to block my ears

As my eyes fill up with tears

I think of a solution

Turning off the boob tube is not an option

Leaving to go in another room is out of the question

I have thought long and hard

To my surprise

I found out I can not run and hide

I must face my fears as they confront me

Looking them eye to eye

Now I am reassured that my decision is not to compromise

To instead accept all that I hear is sweet music to the ear

Being the one

To listen to the first sound when it became heard

Over the radio waves

What a thrill

Now having a new perspective

It's o.k.

I can do both

Intergrading them in the mix

Like a musician who blends

Music with words

Creating magic the world has never seen

It can be so hard to face fear sometimes but I think that once confronted then it can be dealt with and a lot of my worried go away when I listen to my favorite music

Gypsy Rose Lee So many times I am torn in between writing or watching t.v.. I pick writing most of the time because it is far more rewarding. It helps me create and see my inner self.Where t.v. is only a quick fix and a short lived happiness.Thank you for reading and inspiring me to write more. Music is a great motivator.I will try it.
