And the music won’t stop

Not by legislative edict
or court judgment
not by baton-charge or bullet
jackboot or barricade,
for music wafts over
and over again
voice bursts through gag
tenderness lifts finger,
clenches fist,
and the drum rolls of change
are resolutely pregnant,
births and rebirths,
so it was
and so it will be
thus says life-book
and love.

  1. music is for all occasion, and it is an all purpose thing......

    for sick it is therapy, for rebellions it is voice.... for war a 'weapon' but in a non harmful manner, for cricket a moral supporter, for lovers a messenger, a heart beat,

    music indescribable, unbelievable, but so wonderful innovation ....... there are many pages allocated for music in the book of life of all of us..... music is that wonderful and and so tender ......
