Songs

It’s funny how songs
Do whatever it is that they do,
Creeping into our psyche
Bringing a rush of calm
To unexpected moments
All the way from their far away places.

Maybe it’s “Sometimes,”
A happy Franti song
Letting us know that potential rests
Within our spirit
If only we take the time
To believe.

Maybe it’s “The Things We Do,”
A serious Indigenous song
Letting us know that we are from somewhere
And should never forget
That place
Ever.

Maybe it’s “Give It Away, Hard Times,”
A hard driving Blue Mother Tupelo song
Letting us know that life is tough
And we should be there
For those who need
Help.

It’s funny how songs
Do whatever it is that they do,
Creeping into our psyche
Bringing the rush of calm
To unexpected moments
All the way from their far away places.
