Into the Cave I Went

Mon, 01/27/2020 - 12:46 -- Felmly

Into the cave I went,

Clueless and rather small.

Voices, laughing, crying,

I didn’t know where I belonged at all.

 

I never saw myself being involved

With a crowd of musicians so broad,

But after a while I found a room

Where I could finally feel safe.

 

It’s wonderful to think of how

You would be in a position so great

And full of others that can grab your hand

And teach you how to count to eight.

 

Year by year I submerged myself in

Rhythm and melody and harmonies alike

And I even began doing it outside of the cave

That at first didn’t seem like it would be so bright.

 

But I have a place

And I’m an important face

Among a type of race

That is like a touch of grace.

 

I have a name,

I’m not the same,

And I learned how to tame

The very thing I like to call a game:

 

Life.

 

I know what I want even when

Everything seems to be falling

And falling and falling and falling.

Nothing is stopping.

 

It feels so heavy to be

In a spot where you need

To grow up.

Adult.

 

But because I held my breath,

Walked in,

And learned something new,

I have been inspired to inspire.

 

All because of music

And the director that

Gave me the gift of

Having hope.
