Music brings joy,
to all of our hearts,
It’s one of those,
emotional arts.

Sounds of melodies,
that we truly adore,
Brings us pure pleasure,
as our spirits do soar.

Music that touches us,
we can’t help but smile,
We’re free to choose,
genre or style.

Music clearly,
enlightens our days,
Makes us happy,
in so many ways.


The Importance Of Music

Music gives meaning to life
Brings out the joy in sorrow
Brings out the pain in happiness
Shows that the world is not so bland
But shows that it is like sand
The variety of it
And the more you try to hold it in your hand
The more it slips back into the rest of the sand
