Face the music!

Face the Music.

Face the music,
Either sweet or sour,
One may adore,
Or just get bore,
Be certain n sure,
The beat of the drum is pure..

Instruments are just cypher,
But for the musician,
The art and the artist,
The mouth and the piper,
The music of the orchestra,
Gives an inkling in the darkling,
The bridal band is grooming,
Dark horses are out to add twinkling,

The earth, sun, moon or stars,
Are great mysteries?
There is some solution,
Through maths, physics, and chemistry,
The life on the earth is great mystery,
Becomes little live,
Through meaning full poetry…….
