a sonnet for music

you are newfound confidence,

in a mind so lost and confused 

your influence is bottomless,

in expression you are used.

without you i wilt, like a flower in the heat 

any inward demon of mine, you are sure to defeat 

when i struggled the most, you freed me of woe 

though i live in the desert, you've helped me see snow! 

with happiness, you are synonymous 

my problems you help me elude 

your rhythm holds no consequence, 

yet in you am i improved. 

music has no bounds in answering what you entreat

and with this i am lucky to sing many an arpeggio!
