Broken Keys Still Play

By Ita Akpan-Ita

Life is so full of humor

Some times you get it, other times it gets you

Guts you

and leaves you writhing on the floor


As you lay there, the days become long

Memories come and go like an old song

To find focus you must calm the sea

Hear the melodies, feel the beat


Its faint, so you question it

You could never make sounds so surreal

Strong strides that cause big tides

Maybe you should just cower and hide


But listen, Fear not

Be anxious for nothing

Do not dismay

Indeed, your broken keys still play


From noisy symphonies

To jagged tunes

Even to this day

Broken keys still play


Enjoy the new melodies

Embrace your new sounds

It’s always been you

Own it and be proud.
