We music teachers
often employ unwittingly
weapons of mass destruction
in the name
of "defining talent."
What is astounding to me
is that, as a culture
we can look at a horse
or a dog
or a guinea pig
who's been neglected
whose basic needs have been witheld
and have immediate empathy
a Voice Who's been neglected
and beaten to a bloody, terrified pulp
is not only easy to look upon--
of this reality.
And so I'm committed through Opera Organically
to spreading the Awareness of a Love Which
Torrential in Its Power
Washes away the lies of incomplete definitions
Providing the tools for rehabilitation
to a Most Hidden Abused Population
When we learn how to heal this hurt
We will never
Be Voice-less again
And All the World Will Be Singing.
THIS is Life. THIS is Love. THIS is Opera Organically.
