In the You Tube video I read a poem titled " MUSIC" on page 29 of my book.
Did I say something that wasn't right?
Did we part forever without a fight?
Your life is set and mine never was,
been drifting since birth into an abyss of drugless justice.
Music is my drug.
Music heals my soul.
It calms me in my headspace
where nature makes me whole.
Music doesn't ask me questions and it doesn't tell me lies, it comforts
me in times of need, withholds its alibis.
It's been holding me together since I can remember,
runs through my thickening blood.
Uplifts me forever, music is my drug...
MUSIC is my home.
Though my body is everywhere and nowhere
my soul continues to roam.
Poker face becomes displaced, eyes penetrate the unknown.
The wall is higher than ever before, forever,
music is my home.
