The healing melody of music reduces

 Anxiety and stress.

Negative feelings releases,

Emotional trauma and blockages

Hope and love springs.

Elation of mood it brings

Music lifts us from depression

Soothes our frayed nerves and tension

And cools our senses.

Music can make tearless, fearless,

Controls our pain, be it chronic,

With less panic.

It helps to live with disabilities

Or life-threatening diseases.

Drumming helps our cell activity,

Benefits the system of immunity,

Fights immunological disorders,

By traditional methods reaching the nerves,

Glands, lungs, heart, blood vessels and tissues deeply,

Exposed to sound vibrations by vibroacoustic therapy.

 Soothing music helps in seeking self-exploration,

Helps individual realisation

Raising one’s faith in oneself,

Enriching the self.

With oneself creating a connectedness

With each and others wellness.

Music can lead you to recall the past,

Nostalgic feelings are cast.

Going down memory lane,

Much faster than a plane,

It can start a reverie,

And surprisingly, inspire to write poetry,

Deep and intense from our long-term memory.

Music can make you a star,

Overnight make you popular,

Bring in recognition,


Bring name and fame

Affluence and what to name.

With concerts and popularity,

Overnight we can amass enough and give in charity

To the destitute, as did Michael Jackson

To the people of Ethiopia and Sudan

And again, to other needy people,

In the event of calamities natural.

And sensitize the people world wide

 To arouse their humanity in songs like,

‘We are the world, we are the children’

To provide for the have-nots or hungry brethren.

Giving an opportunity to serve humanity.

Willingly and whole heartedly.
