    An ode to music

    I listened to music as I was a kid.

    Any kind of music.

    Music that made me feel things before I knew what they were. It felt good.

    Songs transported me to another place

    Have you ever felt that? Music that spoke to your soul?

    My peers didn't understand me. Why I'm listening to those white folks? Music is music. No matter the race.

    Like food, it bonds people through time and space.

    Haunting dreams, making you believe anything

    I dreamt of a California
    ocean breeze from under a crabapple tree

    Music freed me
