"One good thing about music, when it hits you,
you feel no pain," Said Bob Marley once.
We are a society of addicts, not in the literal sense,
but in the sense that music is controlling our lives.
We tell ourselves that we are okay, We're fine
But we can't go a day without our headphone.
It's like music has inter weaved it's fingers into our brains,
As if letting go of it, would **** us right along with it.
Music is great for making us believe in things that aren't real.
It reaches into our minds and whispers to us.
Music, to me, is manipulative, it changes us,
It shows us how our lives could be.
Now, I'm not saying that I hate music,
That's not my point at all.
I'm just saying that maybe, just maybe,
Music isn't the answer for everything.
And, I know I will probably get hate for this,
But that alright.
Because, I understand what it does,
I understand the influence it has.
And, I'm not asking anybody to give it up,
Because that's not fair.
I'm just asking that sometimes,
Take the headphones off.
Listen to everything around you.
Instead of focusing on the music in your ears,
Listen for the music all around you.
Because that, to me, is the true music,
The music so pure, and so true.
The music of nature, the music of people,
Everything around you that makes a sound.
Listen to that and the maybe, just maybe,
But, until then, just keep going,
Keep listening to what makes you happy.
Because if that what you need to make it through the day,
Then it was worth it.
Who am I to tell you not to.
I just want to note that this is not about me bashing on music. I love music as much as the next person. Well, maybe not, but I do like music. It's just something I thought of that I felt like writing. I'm not meaning anything by this poem. It's just my thought. So please, no hate. Thx
