Life Choices Influenced


Influencing life choices, music permeates every
fiber of being and imagination, causing an untoward
challenge of novel ideas coming out into the open.

Silencing inner voices of incrimination, allowing
foreign thoughts to conjure poetry never thought or
heard of in life's storehouse before.

Calming affects a soul of tortured reminiscence,
allowing new ideas to cogitate and renew a spirit
dwindling interiorly.

Avoiding characteristics of benign behavior coming
alive and including themselves in a repertoire of
notes being played subconsciously throughout life's
etudes and musical epics.

Sagas to be thought in moments of reprieve, once
engulfed in a pocket of musical scores, brought about
on porch steps of imagination.

Soldierly standing at attention, all words are chosen
with explicit care, at no one's expense save mine.

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
