Music, My Refuge

Written by: Melisha Murray

Music is something I can never live without
It is my only refuge
When the universe has locked me out,
It takes me to a place
Where I see no evil
And commit no sin
It acts as a dose of morphine,
Numbs the pain within.
Music does not judge me
Nor does it have me trapped by the unspeakable things,
Instead, it plays out my emotions in a beautiful song,
Giving me sweet release as my heart sings.
Music creates a new world for me
A world of wishful thinking
And blissful feelings,
I cannot live without my music
Because it is my source of life
