Brain health recovery comes to me
With tunes that I can dance to.
Sometimes I need blues mixed with jazz,
A bit of swing makes my hips zig and zag.
Other times it’s trance with thoughts of romance.
I may sing showtunes when I’m in the shower,
A touch of classical soothes my nerves,
Celtic rock awakens my weary step.
I need all the genres for my many moods,
Even rap and hip hop so I won’t swoon.
I listen to the driving beat of DOPE Amine
To cool the heat when I am angry.
Some Johnny Cash will often help
When I am feeling stupid and rash.
I hear Miles Davis and Coltrane
To level the waves of my brain.
A little Aretha Franklin in the mix
To heal my anxiety-ridden soul.
