Silent Music

Silent Music

Listen to the music
Of the silence around us
Find solace in the blues
Discordance in jazz
Aching beauty in classical compositions
Joy in rock and roll
Earnestness in folk
Soul in R&B
Dance in EDM
Get down in funk
Stand up in rap
Hear motivation in rhythm
Inspiration in lyric
Direction in melody
Community in harmony
Fill the world with collective song
Come together as an orchestra
Of the symphony of life
Feel the notes
And fill the silence
With the music we make
As one
