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?

          Inner voice.

          Smile and laugh: the party blend.

          Unmask strangers; reveal a friend.
