The Music of Our Lives (a poem by whonunuwho)

Updated on September 29, 2014
The music of our lives
The music of our lives
Music from the angels
Music from the angels
A universal language
A universal language
a prescription for joy
a prescription for joy
A worldly understanding of love.
A worldly understanding of love.
Helps us brave the storms
Helps us brave the storms
To thread the needle in its eye...
To thread the needle in its eye...
We awaken each new day, a peace in our hearts with music.
We awaken each new day, a peace in our hearts with music.
Music to escape...
Music to escape...

A fine symphony is heard, giving meaning to our lives,

Where our fondest music, played, so lives and thrives,

Those to lose such joyful bliss, a tragedy, for each to miss,

Our moving concerts sustain us, as ever onward we strive.

Those finest treasures of Beethoven, Bach, and of Handel,

Only a few, may ever to so equal, or simply hold a candle,

Their notes, as kisses, blown by each, and all full of love,

Sent by hovering angel's harp, flowing from heaven, above.

Fine music, the Blues, ever so soulful, as to all describes,

By a guitar's strings, is plucked, is picked in heartfelt vibes,

Sounds profound, all these are held, sent from deep within,

Escaping in song, as birds throng, a special message to send.

Its source, struggling, an escape, from times, lived by those,

So full of feelings, and to share, expressing all of their woes.

Low chords move to high, fingers, to climb the vibrant scale,

The meaning of life, expressed in their music, they have to tell.

Music of the open country and by country people, is so made,

As by a guitar, banjo, the harmonica, ringing tunes are played,

Sounds of the south and cowboys, those of western climes,

Each voiced in a hearty spirit, to be released in moving rhymes.

Rock and Roll music, a reflection of the most modern of times,

Shake and break old Jute boxes, dances, in nickels and dimes.

A fast moving society, is to be seen in most every wild sound,

Drum's beat, keeping time, ranging vocals, persist, as all abound.

Beautiful strings, Spanish guitars, all melodious and full, in spirits,

Played in reflective moods, romantic and uplifting, are its lyrics.

A rich and diverse culture is shone, in the rhythm and in its song,

No matter of race, our color, or creed, in its appeal, we all belong.

Music, so beautiful, is our music, helps us to sail on through this world,

Our ship of life, helps to brave the storms, makes each wave, a pearl.

Music to fill our souls.
Music to fill our souls.

      Babies learn language more quickly when it's conveyed through music. This shows that music has a unique power in the inner child and recording memories and sentiments through music sends out messages to others that can be more deeply felt. Nice poem.

      Whonu, music comes from the soul and speaks to the soul. If the world would put down their guns and fire up the bands, we'd all live in peace where everyone can achieve their dreams.

      I must have music in my life. What better way to soothe the soul? What better way to redirect the mind into melodic thoughts? I know it's cliche, but music is the universal language. The problem is, too much of the universe has shut music out and have let disruptive thoughts in.

      Where are the artists that speak to the world? The only one I can think of is Yanni. Every country has embraced him, his music, and his belief in humanity. He is the epitome of hope. His music speaks every language of the world. His music speaks of Peace.
