Over the years

whenever I felt lost

music was the remedy

which helped me most.

Closing my eyes to listen

to my favourite melodies

it took me to a place

where I could feel at ease.

Those calming sounds

washed over me

and for a brief moment

my spirit would soar free.

But now I find these melodies

are not enough

for once I open my eyes

I am faced with all manner of stuff.

No longer am I able

to hide myself away,

there are too many problems

that want to have their say.
