You need as often,

As you consciously can:

To exhale,

As much as you inhale.

To relax,

As much as you toil.

Be as blank,

As much as you’re scribbled.

And go about as crazy,

As controlled; you try to be.

Life isn’t a fight,

It’s a song…

And a song isn’t a song,

Without its highs and lows;

And a song isn’t a song,

If it’s all just a single note.

A song isn’t a song,

Without hundred different things

Coming together as if one.

It’s a song only,

When musicians are each,

playing Separately all the while;

As music is being created,

Together.

And so living is like singing.

And good singing is impossible;

If you can’t pause,

When it’s the choir.

Or if you can’t step up,

For the solo.
