Life is Music

by Chinyere Nwosu

The music plays on
My mind sings along
Pluck the strings
Beat the drums
Let the trumpet blast
Put on your dancing shoes
Baby Conga has come to play
Your heart must be merry
Step, step, step,
As the strings are strung and
The chords sound
The music must go on
For such is the rule of life
