What is music?
Has anybody given a thought?
A writer’s words
Or a lover’s ballad
A mother’s lullaby
Or a child’s cry

What is music?
Can anybody tell me?
The beauty of resonance
Or the voice of hatred
A maiden’s dream
Or the victory song

What is music?
As I wonder
A tribute to the martyrs
Or the dancing tunes
Prayer to the God
Or the bustling traffic sounds

As I listen
I think
What is music?
