When I am down and depressed
I hang on by listening to music.
I sit on the edge of the stave,
and let my legs hang down or
I use the lower rungs to steady myself.
I enjoy the music.
It feels like flying when the music lifts me up.
Or I jump off the rung where my feet are resting
and sing to feel at one with the music.
The music lifts me and I float on its kind arms.
I rest in the music.
Even though I go through hard times
the music softens the pain and
is my comforter.
