Composers aren't poseurs, one may hope,
Offering the sounds that shape the heart,
Making us turn inward towards beauty,
Portrait of the sheer, ecstatic soul.
Of course, your music may help people cope,
Sell stuff, perhaps, or grace some graphic art.
Even so, there is always your duty
Resting underneath the lesser goal:
Sing, then, to make yourself serene and whole.
