Is everything
Life, death
Hope, despair
Love, hate
All wrapped up
In tantalizing chords
And vivid melodies
It's poetry
Brought to life
With brass, winds,
And strings
It's emotion
Expressed with
It's a harmony of
Rhythm and feeling
It's the heart of everything,
Beautiful or absurd
A way to communicate
To cry out for help
To defy society
To explain yourself
To get things off your chest
To share the love
Or, just to make someone laugh
It's a language all in its own
A mess of crazy guitar solos
Or an orchestrated combo of
Clarinets, violins, trumpets, flutes
It's everything
It's music
