“The apple doesn't fall far from the tree." I guess that means we're just products of whoever made us and we don't have much control. The thing is, when people use that phrase, they ignore the most critical part: the falling. Within the logic of that saying, the apple falls every single time. Not falling isn't an option. So, if the apple has to fall, the most important question in my mind is what happens to it upon hitting the ground? Does it touch down with barely a scratch? Or does it smash on impact? Two vastly different fates. When you think about it, who cares about its proximity to the tree or what type of tree spawned it? What really makes all the difference, then, is how we land.”
― Val Emmich, Dear Evan Hansen

Do you ever hear the songs you sing?

can you ever feel the beat of the drum?

Thats what I hear when I'm with my family

singing loud with the world we lead.

Im loving the words I can conjure,

when I have them all to sing and stir

emotions will tangle into one

I love these moments,

for all and none.

The author's comments:

I love to sing, especially with my family. Music is one of the few things I can use to express my emotions, so me and my family use it to its fullest extents.

Singing is one of the pretty amazing things, we're able to do as well as cherish. And that too with family, it would be the moment of life! The pleasant feeling of joy would be just like how it felt when I read this poem... Keep writing!!!☆☆☆
