The Journey of Music - a Poem

Genevieve is a aspiring poet and writer who loves to read. Book recommendations are encouraged! All genres welcome

Every piece of music tells a story. Music is a universal language in which to tell stories. It is accessible to everyone and has to power to inspire people. To me, music is a bloodline to me, the water for my soul. Whenever I want to escape the hustle and bustle of city life, I simply have to put my head phones on and I will be transported in to another world. The world of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker, dancing with Clara and the Sugar plum fairy, or the world of Mary Poppins going on an adventure to Royal Dalton music hall. And now, be prepared to be swept off to your next great adventure!

The journey of music

A single thread,

in a dark room,

can breathe life back,

into soulless shells.

Music connects,

unreachable persons.

Too far removed,

to be touched any other way.

Music is stories,

of tragedies and triumphs.

Woven in a way that

is accessible for all.

Untold romances,

love unrequited,

tales from the depths of living hell,

or stories of heaven upon earth.

Life springs from the notes,

dancing lightly on the air.

Spinning, whirling, tip topsy turving,

whisking you off on a tale.

To lands of sweet dreams,

from wishes upon a star.

Unfulfilled promises or deepest desires,

Longings ignored that scar forevermore.

A picture can be,

a thousand words or more,

while music is stories,

that can fill a thousand books or more.

I hope you enjoyed the poem and will now truly appreciate the beauty of music and the path it can lead you on.

Yours truly,

Genevieve Brooks
