I'm hooked
At least that's what I tell people
It sounds better
Than addicted

My first time
I mean
With more than the everyday stuff
Was fifth grade
I don't remember the day
But the experience
And since then
Not a day has gone by
That I've gone without it
Morning, noon, night
If I could fill every moment
I would
In an instant

That was the day
With my first clarinet
And the first taste of the euphoria
So many just call music
I've been hooked ever since

Listen to it
Play it
Sing it
The day I go
Without a rhythm
Will the day I lose my mind

some say it's too late for that
maybe they're right

But if this is insanty
It's fine with me
Loving a universal language
Of letters A to G
And symbols on lines
So be it
It's too late for me

I'm hooked

music from the soul

Some people ride motorbikes, some are part of them. Some people play trumpet, sax, clarinet, guitar..... some are part of them.

A passion and unison with anything, including life, is pure poetry. This piece had me listening to you, the music resonating with your being.... in a word it was poetry,

Thank you,

This piece, as with mirror, started out in a conversational tone. That is probably because I am jaded to the drug complaints, which I foolishly asumed it was. I forgot that I was dealing with a poet who is true to their heart, and when doing so, the ordinary is not the norm, and the exception to the norm becomes the norm if that is what the heart wishes. After I realised the mistake I really enjoyed the art, because that is the same passion I hold for kids. Stay true.
