Music is Me

I don't have
what you call
the average life.

I don't have
the perfect family.
I don't have
tons of money.

But, I do
have a smile.
No matter
what I face each day.

I don't bruise easily,
but, the right person,
or people,
can punch hard enough
to make one.

I don't heal easily,
I always find a way,
The answer
is music.

Music gets me through
When I have a bad day,
I'll go in my room,
shut the door,
and play my guitar all night.
I'll plug in my headphones,
and get lost in a fantasy.
A world where
everything is perfect.
I get to escape.
Escape all the bad,
and just forget about everything.
I let myself drown in the music.
Let it take over.
Take control.
that's not a bad thing.
Because without it,
where would I be?
For all I know,
I may be lost in darkness.
A place I can't escape.
A place where
nightmares come to life.

And I would be there.
been there.

But not anymore.
as long as I have my music,
nothing can harm me.
Nothing can break me.
Music puts all the pieces
back together,
where they belong.

Music is my life.
Music is me.

Yes!! Music has always been an outlet for me, somewhere I can escape to where I don’t have to think about all the problems I have. It helps me relax, cool down, let my emotions go and just slowly think things through and put the pieces back together. Music is a big part of my life and I think a lot of people out there as well.
