Musical timing influences, lyrical rhyming it entrenches
the style I write and think.
Despite fearing failure too immense,
strut the walk with confidence.
And alone ask the question: “Who, why and which direction?”
Dance with dreams; reject reality as it seems:
forever hide, neglect normality.
Unless…confide in change or not?
Make your choice.
But listen. Hear?
Smile and laugh: the party blend.
Unmask strangers; reveal a friend.
