My Definition

Old Leather Shoes,
Encrusted with dirt.
Small yapping dogs,
That keep you alert.
My definition.
My composition.

Music and lyrics,
Things that I write.
Hiking through forests,
Cold stormy nights.
My definition.
My composition.

Fluffy black kittens,
Old dogs with fleas.
Strings from guitars,
Piano's white keys.
My definition.
My composition.

Singing to music,
Drawing cartoons.
Reading a book,
All afternoon.
My definition.
My composition.

I am who I am,
I do what I do.
From playing piano,
To crusty old shoes.
They give my life meaning,
They make my life whole.
Composing my nature,
Defining my soul.
