DP Daily Prompts: Musical Marker
We all have songs that remind us of specific periods and events in our lives. Twenty years from now, which song will remind you of the summer of 2014.
Life is precious and whether we’re having a good time or completely opposite, we try to hold on to it hoping tomorrow the sun will shine, with these thoughts in mind I feel I cannot count on twenty years later. It does not make me a pessimist when I say that but a realist.
I will attempt to write about the life I had as a young kid. I was very fond of songs,poetry, and music. I sat in the corner of my house each day and sang the songs I learned in school.
One of the songs I loved was:
Oh give me a home where the buffaloes roam and the deer and the antelopes play
Where never is heard a discouraging word and the sky is not cloudy all day
a home on the range where the deer and the antelopes play!
The modern songs cannot match this beautiful song and its lyrics are so meaningful.
From where I am now I’d rather appreciate the songs of long ago.I leave you with this song which is my favorite :
My mind to me a kingdom is such perfect joy therein I find.
365 days Writing Prompt: Teleport
If you could travel to any location in the universe– where would you travel and why.
I would like to travel to an unknown place, where like that song I learned in school, where never is heard a discouraging word and the sky is not cloudy all day.
It would be awesome to live somewhere where there are no evil people killing innocent women to prove they are strong, robbing the inhabitants of their joy of a good life.
If someone could assure me there is such a place in the universe, I’d pack up and leave instantly never to return to see or hear about the horrific crimes committed by monsters who have no love for someone else’s life.
Can we expect to see this in our world, can we wipe away crime, get rid of dishonest people, who are parasites, maybe someday when the world undergoes a monumental change where the criminals are put away for good. This is a universe I’d like to see, I wouldn’t have to move anywhere but stay where I am!!
