Poetry is Music

I wake up, hit play and start.
Listening to what I hear is art.
I jump and dance and sing along,
I'm not sure what it is about this song.
Is it the amazing chord progression or melody?
No, it's the words, that's the key.
I pause, sit down and write.
Listening to these role models keeps me going through the night.
These words that I memorize are more than they appear,
They're poetry that is the most pleasant to the ear.
I want to be like them, I want to write songs.
I want to know that someone out there is singing along.
Poetry is music, above all else.
It gives me emotion, and to it, I give myself.
