As I stand in a side hallway of a bustling school,
I see people, tired, worried, laughing.
I hear the muted sound of gorgeous voices from a small chamber,
And beautiful music from a raised room.
I see the actors and actresses of the new generation,
Outrageous clothing, always acting,
Even when they're not on stage.
As I ascend the stairs towards the lifting music,
I see small glimpses of instruments peeking around the corner.
When I enter the room I see students,
Just starting their fleeting lives as musicians.
It's a beautiful sight to see,
A flicker of hope and life in this scheduled and dreary life.
