Zuihitsu #26

Day by day,
I am reminded
Of the simple, healing
Power of music.

Across time,
Instruments change,
Styles evolve,
New genres are born –
But the purpose of music
As art remains the same:
To express the depths
Of the human heart –
To connect us to each other –
To heal our hurts –
To prove we are not alone
In all our pain.

In times of suffering –
Always –
I gravitate to music.
Composing,
Playing,
Listening,
Singing.
Even if the music simply
Gives my pain and sorrow back to me –
Even if it can’t
Give me any answers –
Even if it drives me
Further into depression –
I find peace.

And isn’t that what we’re all looking for, in the end?
