Music

INSPIRED BY AMANDA GORMAN

There is music in the world.
In every breath,
In every word,
In every place,
In every face.

There is music in the world
In every country
In every state.

There is music in the trees
In every maple to 
Every pine
From all the oak 
And to every birch. 

There is music in the wind
From the billowing sails 
To the forest smoke
With every whistle 
Another note.

Music is a trap like sticky sap
Every note grows like a vine
With every song another rhyme.

Music is a dance and
every dance a song
With every twist 
and every turn
Another movement flows on
Another breath keeps it going
Another leap to win them all
Another step, keep standing tall.

Music is a staple
Life does not work without.
There is music is the world,
In the rivers,
In the mountains,
In the lakes,
In the hills,
In the rocks,
In the valleys,
In the trees,
In the clouds.

Music is not man-made
Music is natural
Music is in the air we breathe
It is in the words we speak.

Mankind has perceived it to be
What we know today.
But music has been here
Through
All
Of 
Time.

Do we not sing when we speak?
Do we not dance when we move?

There is music in the world
That gives us life
And feeds our soul.

There is no life without music,
For those who do not sing the song of life,
Have never really lived at all.
Have they?
