Sincerity, love and compassion fades.
The light of new knowledge, replaced by dim voids.
Life's symphony is rushed in a whirr of noise.
How can I slow earth's rotating sphere?
To bask in its melodic rays-- things only God's hear.
Quiet, calming peace is found,
As selfless labours of love abound.
In the hastened patterns of daily choice,
We are defined and love finds voice.
The war may wage, but we control the pace,
As we heed the commander's echo: "Stand fast in our faith!"
No matter the calamity, how trying life's grand plights,
Unfaltered, I find surety in God's symphony of life!
When the tumult of ragged doubtfulness tears unborn dreams apart.
As the enemy fashions footholds in the crevice of deviant hearts.
Think of all your fellow kin, comrades in this desperate race;
Together never cease to hear the guide of the conductor's pace!
With sonorous voices united, you can drown out the tempter's sounds,
Replace clamour with the clarity of His melodious eternal rounds.
Ascend past limitations, that are bound by crooked laws.
Failure to renew resolve breathes reality to flaws.
Vision stems from hope embedded in the base of fear;
Allowed to grow it shatters doubts of the suffocating, self-critical sneer.
The groan of mankind's shortfalls, fill a valued, foundational role,
In the stirring psalms of perfect love our composer has foretold.
Angelic strains of holiness that captivate and allure,
Breathe peaceful tunes unveiled in time -- so intricately pure.
Then a haunting lonely base note, ignites a depressive wave,
That beckons the audience to question, the direction the conductor gave.
Unphased the conductor leads the mass -- the contrasts intertwine.
As the climax builds, the ears behold -- His timing was divine!
Through soulful tears the crowd shouts out: "Bravo, play it again!"
With a humble bow the conductor sighs: "It never has to end..."
It matters not how many ears are receivers of your voice.
Greater men of fewer words cause many to rejoice.
It all began with vision! One passionate soul believed!
And never eased his desperate clasp on all for which he dreamed.
With resources scarce, and faith unbound, he mused with all his might,
Refused surrender to cynical men that lacked his omniscient sight.
Through the bustled saturated streetways, his sonatas fought to be heard.
Too busy to hear -- they fell on deaf ears -- but still, he was not deterred.
He knew his gift could remedy their paltry, limited ways:
"Until they learn to listen, I'll never cease to play!!"
As darkness descended, a concluding note, enveloped the desolate street,
When out of the dark a man appeared and cried at the muscian's feet.
"This morning I felt abandoned, as I kneeled in my meagre abode.
Life's burdens have caused my will to live to rapidly erode.
With a soul decrepit from heartache and all hope for redemption fleeting,
I cried to my maker for purpose, and begged Him to hear my pleading.
Desperate I set out with the intent to satiate my need for relief,
And found sweet solace in this song that spoke to me in my grief.
There are certainly more who silently cry in need for consoling words.
If I join you in this righteous cause your songs will be better heard.
I lack the refinement and eloquence that you naturally seem to own,
But as faith and desire help me change, my skills will gradually be honed!"
There were sour notes and stretched out strings; to learn was a laborious task!
But with diligent study of each small fault, his mistakes did fail to last.
As each day passed the man did find change deeper then foreseen,
He changed the way he saw the world; he could feel life's symphony!
Their serene and soulful songs of care resounded in men's blind hearts.
With each crescendo the masses were moved and desired that they could take part.
The humble muscian's supernal vision was finally taking its flight!
He always knew behind life's clouds there were glorious rays of sunlight.
These struggling beginnings flashed through his mind as he rose up from his bow,
With fire he imparted a stirring address to the vast, adoring crowd.
"Do not forget this moment! Where you heard and felt your dreams!
These defining moments of daily life are greater than they seem.
For when we learn to stop and hear the symphony of this world,
New passion to live life meaningfully is rapidly unfurled.
Learn to love the ups and downs that paint life in contrast!
The crave for gain from lowly states helps motivation last.
Leave this place united! Let your vibrant voices resound!
From sharing inspiration, life makes eternal rounds.
Weakness finds its virtue in the vow to try and change.
Instilling hope in others, will fuel this valiant aim!
Stand up! Cast off the limits! Of colourless, sombre routines.
Purposefully living your days in faith will unlock your far-reached dreams!
Hold fast to your grand purpose! To help life's symphony spread.
And know that as you stand in faith: 'It never has to end!'"
