    Times like this spark confessions
    that I wish I paid more attention to my piano lessons
    Take out my frustration on those 88 keys
    As a means to alleviate stresses and tensions
    But instead I slam phones
    Raise vocal tones
    Threaten to break bones
    And choose to be alone
    Yell at those who are only trying to help
    Well "F" yall too - you only trying to help
    yourself
    Instead I would love to tickle the ivories
    Scale the scales and concoct crystalline harmonies
    Bang out a beat of perfected pings and pangs placed precisely
    Create a blaze of chords
    That would amaze the Lord

    If only I had practiced more...

    the power of piano...my favorite instrument

    this piece was so phenomenal in it's message
    "misplaced agression" and how pain and anger
    can be transformed into something positive
    and while you may not have paid more attention
    to your lessons...you found another outlet
    I see..."poetry" and your skill is masterful...

    Feeling and Loving the vibe you've brought!
    Thanks for sharing!
