The Singer!

The young man sleeping rough on the street

why he was not honestly sure

talented musician he mused had been called

just wanting freedom to drift

music was his love not the riches and fame

enjoyment was his aim!

 

He had to roam a free spirit that was him

crowds overwhelming not his style

though friends wanted to start a band

not sure better on his own

writing what he felt within his being

songwriter was foreseeing!

 

Pressure applied the group was formed

they realised his talent

but hard to conform being with a band

the one who made it special

the central pin for himself seeking more

choices needed to explore!

 

This  musician had these unique qualities

to find the defining sound

but not the ability to take the pressures

needed for long term

at this point it was too early to detect

yet had all their respect!

 

These truly talented greats are often loners

giving us music never to forget

they rise way above the rest of the pack

pressures driving them to drugs

here regrettably the pattern did not alter

a genius but life did falter!

 

Success came after several years real toil

for this singer it was too much

drugs did take over as he lost the battle

many fellow artists tried to help

coordinating projects to give him hope

his existence on a tightrope!

 

The singer gave one more huge performance

before going to his isolated home

wanting a chance to rest was his only reason

after three days the band broke in

where it was found he had committed suicide

a hand written note by his side!

 

The music the singer had created will never fade

only in his thirties but master of his trade!
