In a world of chains
he's hushing his pace away,
but nobody hears the sound
of him living -
everyone carries on singing,
with each step,
the music of their past.

We all live dragging chains around -
the trick is to remember
that we once knew
how to dance
enjoying
the music of silence.
Written today, sitting in the bathtub, while listening to this song.

Take to new heights far above, far above the city lights,
Open your way into the atmosphere,
It's beautiful, it's beautiful what we have here.

the world speaks to those who are present enough to listen. i forget often, so i'm always happy when something as beautiful as your poem can remind me. silence holds the weight of music on every chord, on every note. thank you.
