Sitting in the subway all alone,
Listening to my favorite radio,
I ponder upon the world around me,
And if this is where I’m really meant to be,
Do you ever stop to take your headphones out,
And listen to the nature’s musical shout,
Calling out to you and your pure heart,
Beckoning to join it in creating art,
Oh it’s a siren and I am a sailor at sea,
The beautiful voice is inviting me,
Alluring me with a melodious rhyme,
To go on an adventure till the end of time.
I’m tempted to leave all my responsibilities,
As I think of all the bold possibilities,
I want to run and I want to be free,
I want to have fun and just be me,
But I realize that path is incorrect,
For who would come to save me when I am swept?
I must take care of my stability,
But must I forget my affinity?
Oh I shall work hard but I shall stay true,
I’ll build a wholesome world for me and you,
Oh yes it might seem like a challenge,
But in my life there shall be balance!
