I Might Die of Starvation, but at Least My Mind Will Live

Sun, 04/17/2016 - 15:03 -- brobes

Music is powerful.


With it,

nothing cannot be achieved. 

Even when trapped on a 

deserted island,

an iPod full of music

can become a vehicle

for the mind's eye.

A glowing chariot, 

a flaming steed,

powerful and graceful,

it carries you away

to boundless adventures

alongside knights,




Even with nothing to do,

as the days tick past, 

the mind will get up

and fly away,

to worlds untold.

The next adventure--

only a song away.
