Soulful Singing

People are like

a song one to

be sung from

beginning to end.

 

Some songs are

sad causing us

to tear up with

a heavy heart

over the tragic

events piling up

on those who sing them

despite their lives’

best efforts.

 

Some songs are

angry over every

turn taken with the

tone of a Johnny Rotten

and The Sex Pistols hit

declaring there is no one

else who is right on

any given day.

 

Some songs are

upbeat grooving to

the rhythm on

their neighborhood street

a smile is their

style as they roll with

the changes being a person

you really want to meet.

 

Some songs are like

a beautiful sunrise loving

and accepting of

anyone of any

color of any gender

of any belief of any

faith as you

melt while

they touch your heart.

 

Some songs are

toxic like the old

45s DJs used to break

they complain about

every effort anyone

makes to project a

day’s light while they

instead bask in their

own continued darkness.

 

The songs that last

that endure on the

charts of life’s changes

are the songs that

sing out their best expressions

their “listeners” never forget

weathering through

the negative lyrics

toward those that shine bright.
