“Reading Between The Lines (of the staff)”

“Music, when soft voices die,
Vibrates in the memory-” -P.B. Shelley
How does one distinguish themselves
As a true musician?
Is raw musical talent defined
By forcing a series of sounds out of an inanimate object?
A true musician knows otherwise
Much less a skill to possess-
Music shares more similarities to poetry
Than to any field of academia
To be a musician is to express
To evoke emotion through a change in key signature To feel pain through a single crescendo
To be inspired by a single measure
So, you believe that music is your calling?
But does music call to you?
Does it speak to you on a deeper level?
A connection far beyond notes hung from a staff
To be a musician is to possess the extraordinary ability
To create words in the absence of voice
An entire narrative composed of a series of black and white scribbles
That grasp the mind and carry it to a far off place
Very few have succeeded at becoming the epitome of music
It requires beyond what technical training can provide
Music requires passion, and the absence of it
Music is merely noise.
by Cristian Rogers-Romero ’21
That’s me a freak,
It’s true, just like the monsters under your bed I’ll make your shriek
It’s not my fault; I just prefer the dark and the mystery that lurks inside
The adrenaline rush just like biting on cyanide
If I knew being different meant I would be an outcast; I would have told people way earlier
I’m not stressed about being the most popular; all those girls try and please boys by looking curvier
I like to just freak out on my own time and do whatever makes me happy
Sure I may look different from everyone else, but at least I don’t look scrappy…
All the “cool kids” are boys and girls dressed accordingly to social norms
It enrages them to see someone different almost like a thunder storm
They/them I don’t understand why it’s so hard to understand
When I ask to be addressed people act like they are sinking in quicksand
All I want to do is to be treated like a human being
But until then I’ll wear the title of a freak like a badge.
