Listen to your own blues!
Press the strings,
Taste a key, a sound, an instrument!
Freedom o’ mind
Freedom o’ body!
Feel the frets,
Touch the reed
Enjoy the vibration!
Followin’ your own desire and rhythm,
Strummin’ your life and spirit,
Blowin’ through your soul.
Hear the bass,
In its grave sound, find peace!
Feel the hi-hat an’ invent your melody!
Look a’the music; look a’your soul!
Your voice with no rule,
Express what you want…
Just don’t lose the beat!

reading this poem with me, thank you!)
