Replace my father’s surround sound speakers, with a flat screen?
And watch as dance parties and slow jams evaporate from our living room.
Without love songs and slow tempo,
I would never have been born;
There is no life without sound.
If music abandoned us,
Life would become a silent film.
Color would see no point, and go their separate ways
Rainbows would become sheet music without notes
What is a car without radio, wheels?
A destination without a journey,
Where no one ever truly arrives
But this mic
Lets the lions roar within my whisper
Puts the orchestra in my inflection
Gives volume to the voiceless
Speakers to the speechless
Fills the seats in the back,
And turns rainbows into radio.
My father can hear me,
in surround sound say 'I love you.'
Even when I'm not in the room
Is your heartbeat not echo to the big bang?
Are your ears not microphones to it?
