2008 Sonnet Contest Winner Grades 10-12

Ashley McBride


Beats pulsating, lyrics flowing, music
Weezy, Boys 2 Men, Chris Brown, Lauryn Hill
When music leaves the speaker it's so sick
The way it sounds, the way it makes me feel

I can't imagine my life without it
Sanctuary, my home away from home
Beats pump out and you listen while you sit
On T.V. and even on the cell phone

Some talk about love, others discuss pain
Some producers like their creations slow
Some praise God, others say his name in vain
Some are loud and proud and want you to know

This is why I am in love with music
You should listen to it, it's exquisite
