Work With Music

My mind runs a thousand miles per hour

It’s overwhelming, I’m overpowered

But music is there to save me

I hum along to the melody

The overthinking, it drowns

Music calms me down

I always prefer listening to music while I work. I sometimes listen to classical music when I don’t want to be distracted and when I need to fully concentrate. But sometimes, it’s good to sing along too to release and relieve stress.

The Playlist

The music starts and at first you listen
You don’t know the words yet, so you try to, you’re driven
The melody takes you and engulfs you
You start to hum along too
Then the emotion carries you away
And you let it because you never wanted to stay
Then slowly it comes to an end
The song about to die down, what have you learned my friend?

And as the songs replay, reshuffle, repeat
You know the words now, you’ve learned, so you’re on your feet
The playlist is much like history, much like love
It tends to repeat itself, this I know of

Ed Sings

He made a rhyme and placed a tune
Talked about love and reaching the moon.

He told of heartaches and how his heart mended,
About the start of it all and how it ended.

He poured songs about life,
And maybe someday finding a wife.

He sang a song that seemed to be dedicated for me,
He had a way to get people’s emotions, you see.

When he sang it was heavenly,
And people sang along happily.

His gift is amazing! I can listen to him all day,
It wouldn’t be a bore, not at all, not in any way.

Melodies

the guitar strings sing

the piano’s keyboard rings

I hear a melody so soft

I’m taken to the clouds

up and away I go

until the flute glides me back

to where the drums beat fast

and the cymbals welcome me home
