Voodooed


The day begins as I awake to the sound of music
Playing on the radio,
A soft, smooth, simple melody runs though my head
Absorbing the unpleasant sounds around me
A melody to start the day, a tune to rouse the imagination
 
My soul is uplifted with the single chorus
Music breathes new life into my hungry soul,
That carries me through the day
 
The day presses on
The song changes, screaming howls of passionate anger
Stream though my body, reviving my soul,
Cleansing the mind of all the stressful work and critical thinking
My mind is overflowing
 
Evening comes
A progressing ambient beat flows through my headphones
Fulfilling the necessary needs to conclude a rough day
This beat, lifting my spirits, repairing the damage of the day
 
Music is life
