MOOD SWINGS

Always, there is music.

When melancholy is allowed to invade,
demanding separation for soul’s sake,
and the need to weep overwhelms,
there is a song
to bathe the face in needed tears.

When the bright silver of joy
infuses the heart, a world
seeming too bright to view,
there is a song
to set one’s feet to dancing.

When a life is surrounded in chaos,
urging one to fight or flee,
the charge to act seems squarely on me,
there is a song
to soothe and bring calm.

It is to me
to choose the song.
