Music Can Effect Your Mood

This summer I am working on the fourth revision of a diary I keep while going through cancer. Each day I will share one rewritten entry. My goal is to have the fourth rough draft completed by August 15th. All rights reserved, but feedback welcome.:)


Day Two Hundred and Fifty Six
Music and Mood
I’ve been using music
a lot lately
to help me
change my mood.

I am finding
that sounds,
and rhythms

my own body creates
can be changed
simply by tuning into
another station.

Itunes and YouTube help.
creating mixed tapes
and mash ups
for different occasions.

For the days I feel like dancing,
a dub-step
high energy

For the days I’m sad and dreary
a vaccine
of positive,
happy vibes.

Mostly, I just wish to feel calm,
multiple tabs on youtube
stream in soothing
harmonious sounds.
