The lessons of a song, a poem for Nicki Aycox by Tracy Diane Miller

Life is a teacher
We study every day
Even in our heartache
There are lessons we take away

But did you even realize
That there are lessons in song
A songwriter is our teacher
She prepares us to move along

Each lyric has a purpose
Why else would a songwriter create
Emotions deliver a message
By definition sincerity can’t be fake

The lessons of a song
Through desire can be learned
Courage is its own reward
To rise above sorrow
Joy is earned
