"Stop waiting and be free. Of me- put me deep inside you and then go out in the world and live. Love the world and yourself in it, move through it offers no resistance, as though the world is your natural element." -The Time Traveler's Wife

There is something about it that makes me passionate.
Is it the notes and rhythm in a piece,
That makes up beautiful literature?
Is it the composer that made music history?
Each musical piece has a story to it;
Whether it is by John Phillip Sousa or Green Day.
When each musician plays either the melody or harmony,
The musician is telling a story.
And as the musician plays each note,
Each note has a meaning.
That meaning is stoned into their heart,
Which has them play fervently.
The composer puts a secret into the literature.
Whether it’s all notes or lyrics
That’s hidden in their eyes.
And the listener will never see behind those eyes
The passion that is hidden in the music’s history.

Music is one of my passions. I decided to write about it. I hope you all enjoy this poem and absorb what music means in this aspect.
