Song man

This poem I wrote during my Junior year at college. It was influence by my Jazz Poetry class, so thank you Prof. Sklar.

This is to you sweet song man

Enricher of the mind man

Instructor of the soul man

To you the music man

 

You who has been with us for ages

You who taught us to peel back the layers of the soul

And to reveal ourselves to others

And others to us

You who sang for us and played for us

The first stories

You who gave us voice always

 

To you sweet song man

Keeper of the Soul man

Breaker of the Heart man

To you the music man

 

You who can save a life

You who can give us strength

You who can fortify a soul

Against all the horrors of the world

And the dark things, that can make life unbearable

To you sweet song man

The not so silent shadow of man

The Funky shaman man

To you the music man

 

You who plays for pain

You who plays for love

You who plays for loss

Sweet sound player

Angry noise maker

The soul of man strummer

 

To you sweet song man

Sorrowful voodoo man

Soul crafting magic man

To you the music man
