Our days keep passing us by:

Days filled with
new projects,
new demands,
new obligations.

We have to be
in a million
places at once.

We race
from place to place,
sit in mind-numbing traffic,
fall asleep
exhausted & empty.

But there

It’s Not Going to Be Today | Sangbad


This week’s Music Monday reader submission comes from Sangbad over at Thoughts of Words. He’s a prolific poet and storyteller, and he crafted a lovely poem that he shared on his site on Valentine’s Day.  In his post, Sangbad describes his creation:

“When it comes to writing a story we follow the dialogue and scene format…there are many forms of a story like a flashback, epistolary, etc…but, they adhere to the defined format of dialogue and scene…why not write a story where there’ll be scene and songs…why not write a story in poem (written by self) and songs (listen to or written self)…
