The Universe is a symphony,
Each life is but a song.
The people you see are notes;
Their sound will fade before long.

    • Thank you! Yeah, I feel music can be used as a metaphor for s lot of things. This poem was likely influenced by my love of Pete Townshend’s lyrics, both with The Who and as a solo artist. He uses music as a metaphor fairly often, especially in his unfinished Lifehouse project, which produced the songs on their Who’s Next album and others. His song Pure and Easy is a good example.
