Genevieve is a Wannabe poet and self proclaimed artist who wishes to do something greater in life.
To me, my love of music knows no end. I play the violin, mostly for myself, as well as an avid listener of classical music. Music is a very powerful force in my life, that has allowed me to push past many challenges in life.Music can be very powerful as it has the power to break even the thickest barriers. It can connect people and bring people together. Music is at the foundation of lots of art. Dance requires music to dance to. All music tells a tale. It is a story, someone's struggles or their triumphs. It can express the most powerful emotions without a single word. A picture can be a thousands words and a collection of music could be someones life story. This poem has been inspired by the power of music to change lives.
Power of music
I am the wave of sound flowing through your ears
the soft undulating rhythms of the heart
That understand your soul
and soothes your mind.
The lilting melodies springing from your hands
and calms the confused mind
and croons that everything is going to be alright
while the world is spinning circles around you.
Shut out everything unnecessary to you
and helps you focus on the now
making life seem simpler
and pushing you on to the right path.
The melodic harmonies permeate the air
making everyone breathe a sign of relief
as we all sway along with the rhythm
and hold our breaths with the time
In this second you are all I need
to bring my joy and peace within
induced by the power
of your quiet assurances
I hope you will be able to appreciate music as I have been able to. Good day and happy listening to you all.
