Shaman - Horse

Poem - Music

I am heavily addicted to something I must have each and every day. With it I am a danger to myself and the world at large. What is this thing? It is music. It is my self-medicating drug of choice as I deal with my personal emotional demons. Insanity is too close by, with the outcome dire. Dance is a very close second to music in my mental health regimen, but I don’t have it on a daily basis like I do the balm of music.

Poem for Day 243 – 20150901

Show me the
beauty of music
to contrast the
world I now see.

Play the piano
to calm my mind,
when all I want
to do is scream.

Calm my anger
before I fly,
my rage within
two steps of Hell.

Sing the voice
of God's pure voice
so I may stay
another day.

Lend me the balm
of dulcet muse
to guide my steps
for ever more.
