Music makes me feel alive.
I can close my eyes and lose myself in it.
It touches my soul
and stirs emotions I keep locked inside.
I try to be what I know I should be.
My faith helps me walk that narrow line.
But when I’m alone…
I crank that radio up loud and
belt out a song gloriously out of tune.
The music surges and pulsates through my veins.
I let the rhythm and beat move me,
expressing the passion, the joy and the
rage that hides within.
Jumping around the living room like
a caged animal gone mad.
The freedom I feel and the joy that
possesses me cannot be described.
I feel alive!
Music to tame the savage beast?
I think not!
It wakes the animal hiding in me.
Tomorrow. I again will be all politeness and smiles.
But for now,
I’m enjoying the dark side of me
for just a little while.
