Albums, collections of songs,
A collection of words
brought together
to right, wrongs
or just to hurt
they're there forever.


Old recordings
on vinyl
or hand written onΒ papers.
New recordings
still on vinyl
but more objected to haters.

To be

easily accessed
and heard by everyone
fans or not,
torn to shreds
when criticised, a song
is unappreciated for what

amount of effort

the artist went through
to create something new
and original
just for you,
for your ears. To view,
to be a signal.

That originality

isn't dead
or dying
or even injured
but instead
to be heard

by millions around the world.
