Materialistic Joys (Pantoum)

On days when I feel only grief,

A simple thing like music can brighten my day.

Reading helps too, books of all genres,

Though it’s friends who bring my smile to stay.

 

A simple thing like music can brighten my day,

The tunes touch my heart like no one else can.

Though it’s friends who bring my smile to stay,

Even if those friends only stay around for a while.

 

The tunes touch my heart like no one else can.

Some of my joys come from fictional characters,

Even if those friends only stay around for a while.

Material joys mean more to me than dreams.

 

Some of my joys come from fictional characters,

Mostly from movie, TV shows and books.

Material joys mean more to me than dreams.

Some dreams last only a year while these things stay.

 

Mostly from movies, TV shows and book,

Cone all of my smiles and joy.

Some dreams last only a year while these things stay,

On days when I feel only grief.
