Symphonic Constitution

If your were an instrument what instrument would you be?

If your were an instrument

what instrument would you be?

If your family were a symphony

would you play in harmony?


Would the music have a consonance constitution

or would it be a discordant dissonance dissolution?

Who would be your conductor, your maestro

to orchestrate your symphonic constitution?


When I was a little tike, I was a snare drum 🥁

  • fast with the rap and tap

While my older bro, somewhat chubby at the time, was the base drum

often beating the snare drum to a pulp

  • if he could catch me 🏃‍♂️

My sister closest to me, we called monkey 🐵

  • as she got bit by a monkey at the zoo

She was the tambourine, as she was always a bit of a flower child 🌼

While the oldest sister was definitely the flute of the family,

not because she was flighty, she was just so darn astute

Our parents were all the remaining instruments, the maestra mother, the pedagogue pop, guiding our flutie, percussion heavy band in a harmonic frequency; very much in tune with each other.

This continued happily for many days until the day the music stopped playing.

Pray each day for you and your family to live with a symphonic constitution
