"You have brains in your head'
You have feet in your shoes,
You can steer yourself in any
direction you choose.
Your on your own,
and you know what you Know,
you are the guy
who'll decide
where to go."
- Dr. Seuss

I draw a long bow in the air,
rosin flying and dancing,
curling around me,
and this is where I belong.
Where the music is.
I sing loud and off-key to Van Halen,
laughing in the car with my friends,
and that's where I belong.
Where the music is.
I take slow careful steps,
counting “onetwothree and onetwothree” under my breath,
carefully, I move across the room.
And that's where I belong.
Where the music is.
I watch my grandparents listen to Bach,
my grandma humming along,
My grandpa conducting,
our kitchen a mock orchestra,
And I know that's where I belong.
What I need.
Wherever I'm going to be,
it's where the music is.
